Darlingtonia pollination studies in 2006

Return to the Trip Overview

Nice flowers:
Other species of interest occur in this seep. Everyone likes images of orchids, so here is a photograph of Platanthera sparsiflora. In her Master's thesis on the site, Christine Elder noted that P. dilatata var. leucostachys occurs at the site, but frankly I don't recall having seen it. I'll keep my eyes open for it! However, plants of this latter species can be seen nearby, where they grow vigorously and produce pretty white flowers. Other pretty plants at this seep are Orobanche uniflora and Pedicularis.
