Oregon Wildflowers: Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge 4/27/15

Oregon Wildflowers has a new report for Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge for 4/27/15

Blooming near the Rich Guadagno viewpoint is a profusion of Tolmie’s Star Tulip (Calochortus tolmiei), along with intermittent Golden Paintbrush (Castilleja levisecta)

Also blooming are Western Buttercup (Ranunculus occidentalis) and Western Serviceberry (Amelanchier alnifolia var. semiintegrifolia). I saw many Fender’s Blue Butterflies flitting to and fro, but no Kincaid’s Lupine (Lupinus sulphureus) yet in bloom.
