Here's Beautyberry, on a little hillside in the far pasture under shade of oaks. I'm seeing lots of beautyberry in other blogs, in gardens. The only beautyberries in my garden are bird-planted. It is a native plant, but becomes a thug when encouraged here, as evidenced by this huge colony.
Beautyberry berries in all their glory. In early summer, when the pale pink blooms are out, they attract butterflies.
Andropogon virginicus -- Broomsedge bluestem, and Solidago.
A colony of young Sumac underneath a Live Oak tree. Later the leaves will be on of the few bright red fall colors we see here. Deer are fond of Sumac berries. I haven't seen any berries anywhere, but we've seen plenty of deer to browse tender shoots before berries form.
Agalinus has formed a colony along the fence near the dirt road, and smaller colonies are forming throughout the pasture. Agalinus is a host for Buckeye butterflies, and I saw Buckeyes visiting but they failed to hold still for photos.
