No New Posts What Is It? UFOs Unidentified Flowering Objects

Post photos of plants you can't identification, or ask even if you don't have a photo. Include in general terms where you live, when the photo(s) were taken, and other relevant information. Clear photos please. When identified the title will be changed. Thumbs up generally can be used as food, thumbs down not. Thumbs down plants can, however, still have medicinal uses.
