This was probably brought to BBI in feed for horses, or lately deer.  Supposedly, it is not common at all in Northern Michigan.  It is growing out on one of the Fox Islands in Lake Michigan though.
Not very much of this on BBI yet, but it is as common as dirt elsewhere.  Grows about 2 feet tall in sunny places.
I don't know why it would have this name, it has no odor.  Note the caylx that looks like a guppy ready to give birth.  These are very small plants.  The entire flower is less than 3/8 inch long.  Found at West End of BBI.
This plant must wait till others have grown before it can start up.  It can't support itself so uses other plants to hold itself up.  These particular plants, pictured, have small leaves in whorls of 5 around the main stem.  The flowers are 2 to 3 mm across.  This particular species is not as "catchy" as some others and doesn't grab clothing as easily.

The middle trunk of this cedar looks to be almost "inserted" between the other two trunks. I marveled at it often on my walks, I named it "Tri-Vecta Cedar" and thus the picture I took Sept. 23, 2008. It was erradicated for the "Ditches to Nowhere" project. Thanks for the improvement MCRC.  Is that a little face in the middle???
