Morris Reserve is part of the Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Park District and sprawls for 177 acres.  This set of prints captures the intimate views of Morris Reserve wildflowers.

Ohio Tallgrass Prairie Wildflowers

Although the lower flat land once supported farming, the park district successfully converted the park over to a tallgrass prairie.  The field holds many species of the Aster Family (Asteraceae) such as Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), Brown-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba L), Eastern Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), Goldenrods (Oligoneuron ohioense), Gray-headed Coneflower (Ratibida pinnata), Lance-leaf Coreopsis (Coreopsis lanceolata L.), Ox-eye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare), Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa), and Ox-Eye Sunflower (Heliopsis helianthoides).

Ohio Woodland Wildflowers

Rising above the tallgrass prairie lies a wooded hillside full of fascinating Ohio Wildflowers, particularly in the spring.  This portfolio captures a few of these including the Barberry Family (Berberidaceae) like Mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum) and the hard-to-find Twinleaf Wildflower (Jeffersonia diphylla) which only blooms for 2-3 days a year.
