    forsythia

    Definitely Aureolaria. Short pedicels suggest A. laevigata (Appalachian oak-leech) to me, but hard to tell from pictures, and without a good look at some of the other characters.

  4. Angelyn says:

    Joan, you’re close. I believe Evan actually has the correct response. As best as I could identify the plant in the nearby woods, this is Appalachian oak leach (Aureolaria laevigata).

  5. Ramkishore Singh Rathore says:

    It is indeed Auriolaria laevigata of family Orobanchaceae.

    Downy Foxglove – I love seeing it at Sweetwater Creek State Park each year.
