True Georgia Aster Hidden in plain sight in one area of Oakey Woods.

Houston County aster. Up to 8 ft tall. Cannot find a name for it, likely a rare new aster.

New England aster. Common on Oaky Woods prairies. Have seen a lot in Crawford County near Musella.

Silene Catesby. Found a new colony of 37 clumps of this rare plant. This gives hope for survival of this plant at Oaky Woods.

This tiny flower is not scutellaria or lobelia which can be eliminated by their seed pods. Likely a salvia. Leaves have the salvia family "look".
