‘Rare’ flower discovered at park


Above is a picture of the “round-leaved ragwort.”

According to The Nature Conservancy group that has been doing a lot of work on the wooded area of the Whiteford Stoneco Community Park, this plant is a new record for Monroe County. 

“While it is not a ‘rare’ plant statewide, it is the only occurrence known in Monroe County,” said Mike Losey, of TNC.
