Not to very sunny flowers

2 Oct


Usually I’m showing the Sunchoke’s tubers which grow below these plants, but now is the time to see up close their often not noticed fall flowers and to enter a pic in my wild flower page.


Jerusalem Artichoke is a plant which stands between 5 to 9 feet tall in patches along many Maritime brooks and rivers in the early fall season. Here is a look at a few bend down stems with flowers where you may start to see them in a slightly different light.


If you are fortunate enough to find a spot – even on an overcast day like this one where you can shine down on them at the same angle as the somewhat clouded sun behind you- then something like this will be seen.


I like this one the most for my (wild flower page), but a few folks in the house chose one of the other pics, which would you choose?

    They are all lovely pictures. I should go and look closer at my bunches in the garden. I have been too busy to give them much of a thought, but as you remind us they are worth looking at up close.

      Thanks Hilda, Busy time for sure, much to decide for us here in the single degree C, hoping to gather some wild fruits and mushrooms this weekend, must race the frost to some of the them to catch them at their best.

      Thanks Jane for commenting, you probably seen lots of these flowers in your area this fall, many different tuber types under tall plants in town and also shorter plants with long straight tubers out in the high marsh.
