September Wildflowers

In March, in anticipation of the Spring wildflower season,  I published a partial list of the native wildflowers that could be seen in Mt. Pleasant each month.  Now that fall is rapidly approaching, I think it is time to revisit that list and look at some of the native wildflowers that can be found in September-October.
