Snowy coral berry, snowy button bush and snowy milkweed on World Peace Wetland Prairie

Please click on images to enlarge.

Coral berry in the top photo is known in some places as buck brush. Its Latin name is Symphoricarpos orbiculatus.
Button bush in the second photo is Cephalanthus occidentalis in Latin.
Swamp milkweed in the third and fourth photos is Asclepias incarnata in Latin.

I went to the World Peace Wetland Prairie website you have linked and found the wildflower section. It was neat to the find these same plants in all seasons of the year for comparison. Makes me want to plant wild, native species in my yard!
