Columbia River Gorge Wildflower Updates 5/5/13

Oregon Wildflowers has four new wildflower reports:

Rowena Plateau 5/5/13
The Columbia Gorge Lupine (Lupinus latifolius var. thompsonianii) and Northwest Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza deltoidea) look good, although the latter is slightly past peak at lower elevations. Things should still look good for the next week or two.

The Dalles Mountain Ranch 5/5/13
The Northwest Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza deltoidea) is slightly past peak, but there are still copious amounts. The Columbia Gorge Lupine (Lupinus latifolius var. thompsonianii) looks great. It should still be worth visiting for at least another week.

Tom McCall Nature Preserve 5/5/13
The Columbia Gorge Lupine (Lupinus latifolius var. thompsonianii) and Northwest Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza deltoidea) look good, although the latter is slightly past peak at lower elevations. Things should still look good for the next week or two.

Ruckel Creek Trail 5/4/13 (Washington)
There are LOTS of Few-Flowered Shooting Star (Dodecatheon pulchellum) in the hanging meadows, with more to come over the next several weeks. Also blooming are: Upland Larkspur (Delphinium nuttallianum), Chickweed Monkeyflower (Mimulus alsinoides), Common Monkeyflower(Mimulus guttatus), Small-flowered Prairie Star (Lithophragma parviflora), and plenty of poison oak… stay on the trail!
