Cynthia in Kentucky

I thought I knew Cynthia. In Michigan these plants have only a few flowers, hence two-flowered Cynthia. They're always a pleasure to see because there's just enough orange in the flowers to set them apart from all those other yellows. But as you go south it seems Cynthia becomes more enthusiastic, producing more stems and flowers. And it seems to venture out of the damp spots onto roadsides and even rocky hillsides like this. So hello, Cynthis, nice to see you again!
