Frost Flowers, aka Frostweed or Wingstem   (Verbesina virginica)

November 2014:
This was the first time I had seen this phenomena.   Alan Cressler, Steve Bowling and I were headed to photograph the first of
a series of Native American sites, when we encountered these icy blooms.   Needless to say, we delayed our journey for a bit...


Frostweed

During the first hard freeze of winter, water "squeezes" out of the
plant's stem, forming ice ribbons and other interesting forms.
