Oregon Wildflowers: Camassia Natural Area 4/4/19

Oregon Wildflowers reports on Camassia Natural Area

The bloom is in its early stages, but there are some things to see.

Blooming in the forest: Slender Toothwort (Cardamine pulcherrima), Oregon Fawn Lily (Erythronium oregonum), Western Trillium (Trillium ovatum), and shining Oregon-grape (Mahonia aquifolium).

Starting to bloom in the meadows are Rosy Plectritis (Plectritis congesta), Large-flowered Blue-eyed Mary (Collinsia grandiflora), and Western Saxifrage (Saxifraga occidentalis). The namesake wildflower (Camassia quamash) has not started to bloom yet, and only a few buds were visible today.
