Plant Habitats

Woodlands and Woodland Edges

Woodlands and woodland edges are charactered by tree cover producing medium to partial shade. Many of the plants that are adapted to these habitats typically emerge and flower early in the Spring to take advantage of the higher light levels before the trees leaf out.

Low Meadows, Stream Banks, Floodplains or Swampy Places

These habitats are generally low-laying and wet.

Sunny Upland Meadows and Hillsides

These plants are typically adapted to drier conditions resultant from full exposure to the sun.
