Happy Mystery Monday! What native plant did we find on the meadow’s edge? This is a special plant that we don’t often see at Adkins Arboretum!
Last week, we asked you about Phlebiopsis crassa! This purple fungus does not have a widely accepted common name, though it has been referred to as violet crust fungus. This crust fungus is generally found on fallen dead hardwood and is one of many fungi that help to break down wood and return it to the soil.
