  • Question
    Dear Arthur Haines, On October 3, 2020, we found growing on the wet sands along the shore of Ossipee Lake in Ossipee, NH a four(4) blunt end leaf Galium in fruit. The Galium has the appearance of Galium palustre. Reviewing my image the fruit did not appear smooth, possibly "bumpy", possibly having hair. Can you review my image and help me with the identification? Thank you for your help. Best regards, Yvonne
    Answer
    Dear Von, good afternoon. Go Botany is currently experiencing a technical issue with image uploads. Feel free to attach the images of the Galium and send them to me at ahaines@nativeplanttrust.org and I will try to assist you. (Friday, 9 October 2020)
