True Lover's Knot - Paris sp. This is an unusual and rare plant to be growing in upstate New York. I&#039;ve been consulting experts and the species ID is uncertain so far. It might be Paris verticillata, but Paris quadrifolia is also possible. It might have initially been planted. Last year, I counted one plant, but yesterday, I noted at least 20 plants.<br />
