The forests of Inwood Hill Park contain mature red oak and some of the largest tulip trees in the city. There is also a rich, moist valley between two rock ridges called The Clove. During the early spring, the valley is covered in wildflowers, which are able to thrive in the sun before the tree canopy leafs out. Some of these wildflowers include the city-rare downy yellow violet (Viola pubescens), bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) and Dutchman’s breeches (Dicentra cucullaria).
