The Pink Leaves

Jun

Spotted while I was out collecting raspberries this morning. As usual, I have no idea what it is or why it has pink leaves.

But I like it.

    They look a little like columbine leaves to me. But I’m not sure. Hmmmmm…… :?

    Columbine is the first thing I thought of, too. I’ve never seen pink ones before. Pretty!

    I’ve never seen anything like it, but it looks like it’s growing in the middle of some poison ivy!

    I had a heck of a time getting to your site today. I’ve been trying since a little after 4:00 this evening, when I got home from work. I kept getting “Internet Explorer cannot display this web page”. Lord, I was beginning to have CiTR withdrawal and was beginning to think something had happened to your site since I could still visit other sites!!! Whew, all better now….. :snoopy:

    The leaves sorta look like cranesbill. I looked it up in my wild flower book but couldn’t find anything that had flat petals like that. Hopefully some expert here will identify it!

    The look a lot like columbine leaves, but I don’t know why they are pink. Maybe they are that shade because they are past their blooming time (“fall” for columbines)??

    My mom thought it may be mayapple. I guess it’s an herb of sorts. Google had all sorts of pictures and what-not.

    Hi Suzanne, I just did a quick Google search and found this. Foliage: The foliage of the columbine provides year round interest even when the plant isn’t in bloom. The foliage rosettes turn a maroon color in the fall and remain attractive throughout the formant season.

    Columbine, I have some too. Although the leaves do color after blooming, yours look as though the plants need more/less acidity (I can never get it straight). Anyway check out Aquilegia canadensis pix @ http://www.briartech.com/earlyspring/columbine/img2.htm
