I have been waiting for the right moment to photograph this plant. Lord knows I've seen a lot of it lately (and still rash-free, believe it or not), but I've never felt the urge to take a photo until this day. There's still a better photo to be taken out there on some future foray, but I like this one for now.
Frequent on sphagnum hummocks in poor shrub fen with Alnus rugosa, but generally common throughout shrub swamp and fen.
Frequent in sedge meadow and occasional in cinquefoil shrub fen.
Frequent along Headwaters bike trail in weedy forest edge habitat.
Common in shrubby cinquefoil fen and sedge meadow. Difficult to get a good photo because most inflorescences were weirdly malformed or otherwise ugly (beautiful).
Rare; single low shrub in shrubby cinquefoil fen.
Scattered throughout shrub swamp and borders of wet woods.
Best raspberry I've tasted in a long time, honestly. Creamy consistency with hints of vanilla.
