North Central Park

The first set is from the Ravine and Butterfly Gardens in Central Park (map). A few of these gave me a bit of trouble to identify.

The second set of flowers are in the Conservatory Garden. I am stuck on the last two. Does anyone know what they are called?

A friend, Fritz, from the Butterfly Club in NYC helped me identify the red daisy like flower. It is Great Masterwort (Astrantia major ‘Rubra’).

    I’m so happy that you are able to get back into the park Sherry. I am enjoying these views of New York City. Empty streets are not that exciting.

      It’s only good early early in the morning before the crowds get there. I like the empty streets. They are surreal.

    The Penstemon digitalis is known in some places in the midwest as Arkansas wedding bouquet. Brides have been increasingly cautioned not to go into the fields to pick it for their celebrations, as its numbers have been decreasing!

      Interesting. The bell like shape and being white makes it a nice choice for weddings.
