Some of the more than 2500 plants in New England are so common that we can see them almost anywhere, on any given day, if we know how to look. Red maple, meadowsweet, partridgeberry, and hay-scented fern are good examples - can you identify them? Knowing very common plants from four broad groupings can provide you with a solid foundation for further plant study and will help you make comparisons when identifying new species.
