Starts as an umbellete of fushia tubes perched atop a moderate stem with opposite, simple, veined leaves.
It opens into orchid like blooms with 2 distinct petals, one of which droops down and curls back towards the base of the flower, the other curls upwards and has 4 scallops on it. Inside are four stamen and a single pistil emerging. May have an inferior ovary.
As the flower ages, pinks fade to yellows.
After it’s all said and done, a red clustered fruit manifests.
Found this orchid like red to yellow flower and its odd red fruit roadside in Seaside Oregon, close to the Neawana river, about 2 miles from the river’s mouth.
