The trout lily gets its name from the mottled color on its leaves which look similar to a brook trout’s skin.

DCP Presents “Plant Name Lore”

Ever wonder how a plant got its name or why historical tradition views it in a particular light? The Mayapple is pretty easy, but others aren’t so simple. On May 20th at 2pm join a Darke County Parks naturalist to learn more about these interesting aliases. During this illuminating afternoon, participants will discuss why some plants were stuck with their common names, the historical uses for them, and perhaps a few superstitions about these beautiful back country residents.

For more information about this or any other Darke County Parks program or to register, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
