And, Tom quietly, where the "frost weed" (Verbesina virginica) grows, magical and mystical ice flowers appeared. AWildflower Center educational email appeared as a freeze warning occurred the first week in January. It starts with, "Like nature's popsicles, frostweed ice shows up during extreme weather and never fails to delight the senses. Learn more about this fascinating floral phenomenon and prepare to see it yourself." RonTom and I look early on freezing mornings, before the sun rises high in the sky, to take in the spectacular beauty that occurs at the base of"frostweed" plants. The ultra-delicate ice formations take on lovely and differing shapes of flowers and ribbons. The Wild flower Center explains, %fter frostweed's flowers fade, this perennial plant goes dormant and stands there gradually drying and looking rather bedraggled. Only then is the stage set for frostweed to perform its magic trick. When the first good freeze sets in, the plant draws underground moisture up through its roots and extrudes that water sideways through the lower portions of the stalk as ribbons of ice. Those striated ribbons may curl tightly inward, suggesting scrolls of paper or parchment, or they may undulate irregularly as new ice crystals form and push the older parts of each ribbon further away from PHOTO BY PAULINE TOM the stalk."
