<< This plant appears in Collette Pogue's garden annualy.
Does anyone know what it is? Is a lichen? Is it poisonous?
It is rather attractive, don't you think? >>
It is some type of fungus and I bet it is growing on a stump. It is common in
midsummer on rotting wood. The "shelfs" of the fungus have a velvety
underside. You can scratch pictures and words into this surface. The fungus
will dry hard as wood and be a memento of your hike in the woods. Some forms
can be one foot side.
