Here are two other examples of subfamily Rosoideae. On the left is Waldsteinia fragarioides , Barren-Strawberry. This species is native to eastern North America, including extreme southern Illinois. It is often cultivated as a ground cover plant. The plant on the left is Filipendula rubra , Queen-of-the-Prairie, which is native in the Midwestern United States, including a few places in Illinois. It is also cultivated as a wonderful large herbaceous perennial. It grows well in part shade in Dr. Robertson's back yard.
