Wildflowers Destroyedhundreds or even more of them on my neighbors propertyfalse solomons sealrue anemonefalse rue anemonewood anemoneshooting starsjacobs ladderI dug some up and saved them but not enough.Neighbor is building a new house and I rescued some from where the driveway is going in.He also chopped down about 7 white oak trees some as much as 4 feet in diameter. Many flowers were around the trees. I took some the other day and knew the trees were coming down today but thought I could get some after trees down. Sad mistake. The heavy equipment totally trashed everything. Then they ground down the stumps and killed everything around the trees for sure.Really sad. I saved maybe 50-100 and took all the shooting stars I could find (just a handful) but a really nice clump of them that was there last year was obliterated already during some preliminary clearing. I have a ton of false solomons seals so I do not feel so bad about those and I took some big clumps of jacobs ladders but hundreds or possibly thousands of the first 4 in the list above were destroyed. When we built our house I went around and gathered every flower I could find. I did not know that shooting stars could be transplanted but they moved great. I have a very nice patch of them. Deer eat my false solomons seal and I have real solomons seal as well. Have to spray both of those.http://www.wnrmag.com/stories/2003/apr03/stars.htmhttp://www.nwgardening.com/native.solomon.htmlhttp://www.all-creatures.org/picb/wfshl-solomonsseal-false.htmlhttp://ncnatural.com/wildflwr/sseal.htmlhttp://www.all-creatures.org/picb/wfshl-rueanemone.htmlhttp://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/woodland/plants/fs_anemone.htmMish
