A few finds out on the trail this morning. Stump water, or “spunk” water as it’s sometimes called, is an old Ozark cure-all and magical woodland offering. Coral honeysuckle, Lonicera sempervirens in the second photo, and Crown vetch, Securigera varia in the third. Coral honeysuckle is a wonderful native alternative to the invasive Asian varieties, it doesn’t spread much, and doesn’t kill out all of the other plants around it (and it’s beautiful too!).
