Weekly Puzzler #153: Tall White Flower Above Waxy Leaves

Happy Saturday!

This week’s puzzler is a plant, commonly found in southeastern North America. Here in North Carolina it is very common, especially on trails along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Check out the photos below–have you seen this plant? Do you know the name of it?



Use the comment box below to give your guess. This is the very LAST week to get your guess in the box for a chance to win this quarter’s drawing. In the past I have given away blank notebooks, greeting card sampler packs and posters. All correct answers will be entered in the drawing, which will take place on the first day of summer–which is next week, on Wednesday, June 21st!

    I think it is Galax which has been in bloom this month.

    Reminds me of a small town in Virginia where they hold the Old Time Fiddlers Convention!

      Ha, always the funny one, giving the answer without really saying the answer.
