Leaves of Keddie Cascades, Part 2


  1. It's hard to tell from the photo, but I think that the flower you found is California Fuchsia (Epilobum canum); they bloom August - October and are found to 10,000 feet. The plants I have seen growing in the wild have been low-growing, like yours, to ~10 inches or so in height. Foliage varies from gray-green to clear green. You probably already know this, but hummingbirds are the obvious pollinator for this flower.

  2. Thanks. I wish I had taken a closer look, or at least taken a better photo. I was on the way home and hungry. Maybe it'll be there next year.
