Favorite Locations

Calendulaceum at Mount Rogers There are wonderful examples of calendulaceum all along the Blue Ridge Parkway from the Roanoke, south to the Smokies, and beyond. I have seen excellent forms of calendulaceum at a number of places in Virginia including Mount Rogers and Grayson Highlands. In North Carolina, the mountainside at Wayah Bald can turn orange when the calendulaceum in the woods has a heavy bloom. The calendualceum at Andrews Bald in the Smokies is beautiful too, but the deer have been grazing this area rather heavily in recent years.
