Sumter National Forest (S.C.) Stop 3 - Long Cane Division - Episode 3


Rudy and Jim move to the Long Cane Division of Sumter National Forest. Here, Umbrella magnolia is starting to bloom. Christmas fern and Jack-In-The-Pulpit, Faded trillium, Wild germanium, Baneberry, Mayapples, Nodding trillium, are seen popping up all over the ground. Ginseng is an unusual plant found in this area, since it’s associated with mountain regions.

All around, big beech trees, tuliptrees, and other hardwoods tower over Rudy and Jim. A Green Treefrog is seen perched on a nearby magnolia tree, with its green skin almost perfectly blending in with the color of the leaves.
