Some Canal Wildflowers
Tall Meadow Rue -- One of the many native species that thrives in sunny, wet areas, of which there are few in Princeton.
Swamp Rose--This is the native rose, found growing on the banks of Lake Carnegie and the canal.
Crown Vetch--This is an invasive exotic groundcover. It used to be planted along highways, before its invasiveness was recognized. It's common along highway 76 in Pennsylvania, and also pops up in Princeton here and there.
