Streamside Flower Cascades Foothills

Post by BurnsideBob » April 4th, 2020, 2:08 pm

Hi Botanical Whizes!

I've never noticed these before. The first one is maybe a little over 12" tall, the second one about 16". They are maybe 3' above the water level of the creek, on the South bank, so, at this time of year, mostly shaded.

TIA

Burnside

You nailed it, Adam!!

Thanks.

BTW, do you contribute plant location data to the Oregon Flora Project?
