Asarum caudatum – Long-tailed ginger. North Umqua River trail (Tioga section), 4.25.15. Still hoping to stumble on the marbled variety in bloom.
Disporum hookeri – Hooker’s Fairybell. North Umpqua River trail, 4.25.15.
The Umpqua River. Isn’t it a beauty? I went to the Glide Wildflower Show this spring in Glide, OR. Don’t get me wrong, the flora was fun to look at, but the show-stoppers were the pies! I tried a slice of Larry’s apple pie and it’s still on my mind. Show organizers also offered guided hikes on the North Umpqua River trail and I got to see wild ginger for the first time.
