Although the Mixedwood Plains have some rare plants, these rare plants are also endangered. Some other naturally growing
plants are: clovers, black-eyed Susans, Golden Rods, Wild berries, and Trilliums (the above plants are more commonly
Trillium's are Ontario's Provincial flower and naturally grow in Ontario. Most of the Trilliums that are found, are in
the Mixedwood Plains ecozone. Trilliums are also found on Ontario’s Health Card. (Refer to Fig.1)
Black- eyed Susan's(refer to Fig. 2) are found in the
Southern part of Ontario. Back in the days, native people would use this plant for medicine. It was used to heal wounds
and/or cuts. Other plants that are common in appearance are: Eastern Red Cedar, Bitternut Hickory, Blue Ash and the Tulip
Tree. The colours of these plants appear very unique to a human's mind.
Tulip trees (refer to Fig.3) look very much like Tulips, but there is one difference which distinguishes the two
plants. Tulips come in many different colours, but the most common colour is red. Tulips are flowers that have a unique pattern,
and their petals open during the day when it is sunny and warm. At night its petals close. The Tulip tree is very similar
when it comes to opening and closing its petals. The difference is, that the colour of the tulip trees is yellow and, it grows
on a branch or on a tree bark (as you may have guessed from their name).
