If I had to guess, I would say Elderberry, but their berries are very dark, aren't they? If anyone has any suggestions on the ID of this plant, I'd be happy to hear them.
Here's another one I don't know. These berries turn a lovely shade of blue come September, but they're pale green in July.
Again, any suggestions as to the ID would be appreciated. This is definitely a plant that likes shady locations, if that's of any help.
This one I was able to identify, but if I had just the berries to go off of alone, I never would have figured it out.
Aha! Berries and flowers right on the same plant. Looks like we've got some Bittersweet Nightshade here.
Like the Wild Peas from a few posts ago, this plant was observed in multiple stages of development. Some of the flowers were still just forming and hadn't even bloomed.
Here's a nice blossom. For some reason, I have the hardest time remembering the name of this plant. When I see it, I know I know it, but I can't remember the name! I have the same problem with Sweetgum trees. Don't know why. I guess I need to work on some kind of mnemonic device to help jog my memory.
I'm just about ready to wrap up my showcase of flowers from northern Michigan so we can get to more seasonally relevant posts. I hope you have enjoyed these posts.
