Sept. 16, 2010 we went to the Cooper’s Creek Wildlife Management Area in North GA where I found this plant I had never seen before in full bloom next to the river. When I came home and looked in my wildflower book it looked exactly like the photo (and matched the description) of Grass-of-Parnassus, but my book says that doesn’t grow in GA. It does say there are similar species that do grow in GA, but gave no pictures.
We went back to the same area on Sept. 8, 2011 and I found what I believe is the same plant, this time with only buds – not yet open – but the leaf and form are exactly the same.
Is this Grass-of-Parnassus or one of the “similar species”? Has anyone seen it in another location?
