I'm having second thoughts about what I photographed. I thought wild ginger was known in Nova Scotia, but it is not even listed in Roland's Flora, so I don't think I should have called it without being more thorough at inspecting it.

Kalm's Hawkweed Hieracium kalmii var. fasciculatum

Description

There are two similar species growing together. I originally called the earlier blooming one H. sabaudum based on hair shape, but have changed to H. umbellatum based on input from other naturalists.
This one I am more confident is H. kalmii, and seems to fit Roland/Zinck's description of var fasciculatum.
Both plants are weedy and clearly not endangered species.
I see another comment on iNaturalist that says H. kalmii should be considered part of H. umbellatum - which seems to be how others in NS are posting similar specimens. My texts say the leaves are much too wide for the narrow definition of H. umbellatum.
Any comments that can help clarify this would be welcome.

I think this is hybridizing to produce the extremely narrow leaved Sagittaria latifolia growing with it (shown earlier).

Description

In gravel roadway leading to a bog. Didn't know it was rare when I took a sample, but there was lots there.
I saw none with corollas showing (time of day?) but the seed capsule says hypericum to me (and iNaturalist's AI seemed to agree).
The last shot is from Anne Mills, who was with us and shows a plant she found with corollas.
