yellow flower on Knebal Springs trail

Post by dockd » June 26th, 2019, 8:30 pm

I've seen these for years but usually after they've flowered and just have a ton of seeds. I've spent time with my book and the web and still don't know what they are.

thanks,

(update: corrected trail name)

It's silvercrown (Cacaliopsis nardosmia, a.k.a. Cacalia nardosmia, a.k.a. Luina nardosmia).

Yes, that's it. Now that I know the name, it is in my Falcon Guide "Pacific Northwest Wildflowers". Their picture leaves something to be desired, unfortunately.

If you want a better book, check out Turner & Gustafson's Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest.
