There are several spring wildflowers in bloom right now along the Rogue River trail (and vicinity), but once I find lilies in bloom, my love for them takes over and I have a hard time focusing on their nearby companions. I’m really sorry. So once I again, I am featuring mostly lilies… Fritillaria recurva – Red Bells. Rogue Rover trail, 03 April 2017. There is a beautiful patch of Red Bells along this trail that I like to say hello to every year.
I cannot tell the difference between Erythronium citrinum and E. oregonum; both are found in SW Oregon. What we can all agree on is that they are fawn lilies and I personally can’t get enough of them. I found these beauties growing near the Rainie Falls trail, along Galice Road, 03 April 2017.
Prosartes smithii – Smith’s fairybell. Found off of Galice Rd, 03 April 2017.
The larkspur -pictured above- were growing near Delphinium nudicaule (or red larkspur). I didn’t get a decent image of the red flowers, but I found a couple of plants that had salmon-colored flowers. Anyone know what species it is? I’m not sure what the purple variety is either…
That’s the Rogue River to the left! Have a great week everyone and I’ll be back next week with more lily pictures.
