[puma-news] Heartleaf Arnica

You can see this plant now in the forests around us. It especially
likes openings in lodgepole.
I haven't yet keyed this out to exact subspecies, but I betcha it's
probably A. cordifolia.


[puma-news] Wild Elderberry

This lovely plant, Sambucus microbotrys, is in the Honeysuckle, or
Caprifoliaceae, family. Its pyramidal flower cluster distinguishes it
from its domestic cousin. It will have red berries.
