    The Elm, I think could it be slippery elm? Love your column. Would you please feature underground bees sometime. My skunk dug up two for me this summer, thank goodness. I think they were wasps. Millions of them. Do they survive the winter underground? Nancy

  4. I go with knotweed, maybe some day it will be NH’s state flower when it takes over everything. Nh can replace it the other non-native we have as state flower which is the lilac

    I think the seeds are those of Japanese Knotweed, going by either Fallopia japonica or Polygonum cuspidatum. I hope I recognize them – I drew some for my naturalist seed collection.
