Form iSite: the Cup Plant
Did you get outside this weekend? Share your experiences with us through our June iSite Challenge: Exploring Forms in Nature!
For example, this is the cup plant (Silphium perfoliatum L.), a plant native to our region that has leaves that join together at the stem to form a cup, holding water to attract birds and pollinators. So we could ask ourselves "how does nature attract collaborators?" or "how does nature store water?" and we could look to the cup plant for inspiration!
