The Sarracenia Chapter field trip for Native Plant Month drew a record 42 participants on a golden autumn day. We walked among wildflowers in variety in the pinelands. Participants came from five different chapters of Fla. Native Plant Society, three of them chapters seated in the Florida Peninsula. Among the many species we observed and commented on were three Florida endemic plants --plumose aster (Symphyotrichum plumosum), Florida tickseed (Coreopsis floridana), and the legume "scareweed" (Baptisia simplicifolia).
