John James Audubon State Park Henderson, KY

Dutchman's Breeches

Our hillsides are covered in white and light pink flowers. Harbinger-of-spring, Dutchman’s breeches, Cutleaf toothwort, and spring beauty border the trails, shelters, and roads. Within the next few weeks purple and burgundy flowers will emerge. Flowers from Recurved trillium, phlox, Appendaged waterleaf, Paw Paw, and Dwarf Larkspur will attract a completely new set of pollinators. Shake off the winter and come this Saturday to the Wildflower Extravaganza. Three walks, at 9, 11, and 1; and a children’s scavenger hunt are planned. Contact Julie McDonald at 270-826-2247 for more information.
