A flower from my recent visit to Maine:
The tiny flower was in a cluster that crowned a stem dense with fine foliage. It’s probably Euphrasia nemorosa or Euphrasia stricta. Like Agalinis species, it’s a hemiparasite that attaches to the roots of grass. I found it in a grassy meadow on Mt Agamenticus, a hill not far from the coast, just 700 feet above sea level, but the tallest spot in the area, so the view of the coastal plain is panoramic. Agamenticus is an Algonquian description for the site; “the hill beyond the cove and river” is one of many translations. The name Agamenticus was used for other sites viewed from the coast in Massachusetts as well.
