Adder's Tongue (Erythronium americanum) - 01
(Adder's Tongue (Erythronium americanum) - 01) The most distinguishing characteristic of non-blooming adder's tongues is their mottled leaves (note the leaf to the right of the adder's tongue flower).  The adder's tongue blooms in early spring and can have a yellow (as above), violet or white flower with three stamens, three petals, which is supported on a short stem rising up between the plant's two leaves.  The literature says that adder's tongues can grow as tall as 10 inches, but the ones we have seen are generally only a few inches high.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
