Dissections

I have really enjoyed learning with y’all. That learning is definitely still ongoing for me, but this class has given me some good tools to start.

I’ve tried to work here some plants that I encounter out and about in my daily rounds.

Johnson Grass – Sorghum halpense

Red Clover – Trifolium pratense

Rose Mallow – Hibiscus syriacus

Bald Cypress – Taxodium distichum

  1. Great job on these Jennifer!
    I like that you included a gymnosperm, bald cypresses are very cool. I am always amazed by the knees that they form when growing in swamps. The cones are really pretty as well. Remember the diadelphous stamens on the legumes, 9 stamens are fused at the filaments and 1 is distinct. Similarly all stamens in Malvaceae are fused by their filaments to form a staminal tube. Johnson grass is a nasty invasive, I remember it well from AZ.
