Wildflower Report In The Great Smoky Mountains

September 18 Wildflower Report from Tom Harrington for The Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Maddron Bald (Beginning-Gabes Mountain Trail) – White Snakeroot, Early Goldenrod, Great Lobelia (really nice ones), and White Top Asters.

 Gabes Mountain (Beginning-End) – Mountain Gentian, Early Goldenrod, Black Cohosh, Pink Turtleheads, White Top Aster, White Snakeroot, Pale Jewelweed*, Curtis Aster, Spotted Jewelweed (1), and Great Lobelia. * On two switch backs around two and a half miles from Cosby the Pale Jewelweeds are tremendous – stretching from the trail for a long distance up the side of the ridge – well worth the hike in there to see them – most of the plants are from four to five feet tall.
