Ecola State Park Spring Flowers

It is May 20th, 2017. Spring is running six to eight weeks behind its normal schedule, and these are some of the plants I observed growing along the trail. Although all of them looked familiar, I could only identify one by sight.

This grew in clusters throughout, but wasn’t the most prevalent of the flowers. 


Manroot is easy to identify because it looks like a cucumber plant. It is, in fact, a wild relative of the salad superstar. It was growing all over the place.


Once upon a time, I knew the standard and scientific name for these hairy little flowers. 


One more that I used to know by heart. It’s some kind of lily. This was growing all over the place and playing the role of ground cover across most of the visible forest floor.
