Glistening galax


Up on Brasstown Bald yesterday, we saw many patches of the wild groundcover galax. I did not know that the shiny galax leaves are commonly used in floral arrangements, and that its harvest is regulated—according to this link, which also includes a link to a 44-page PDF on the plant (your Federal tax dollars at work!). I never would have guessed there was this much info on the unassuming Galax urceolata!
