CommentsThis has not been a good year for the famed balsamroot. Even when it was its peak several weeks ago, it looked blighted (as it did today). However, there are still a good variety of flowers in bloom, especially in the meadows.

Blooming in the forest: Farewell-To-Spring (Clarkia amoena), Fork-Toothed Ookow (Dichelostemma congestum), Small-Flowered Blue-Eyed Mary (Collinsia parviflora), Nine-leaf Desert Parsley (Lomatium triternatum var. triternatum), Slender Popcorn Flower (Plagiobothrys tenellus), Broad-Leaf Star Flower (Trientalis latifolia), Striped Coral Root (Corallorhiza striata), Inside-Out Flower (Vancouveria hexandra), Thimbleberry (Rubus parviflorus), Yarrow (Achillea millefolium), intermittent patches of Columbia Gorge Lupine (Lupinus latifolius var. thompsonianus), Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana), Threadleaf Phacelia (Phacelia linearis), and Columbia Windflower (Anemone deltoidea).

Blooming in the meadows: Northwest Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza deltoidea), Harsh Paintbrush (Castilleja hispida), Spring Gold (Lomatium utriculatum), Columbia Gorge Lupine (Lupinus latifolius var. thompsonianus). Upland Larkspur (Delphinium nuttallianum), more Small-Flowered Blue-Eyed Mary (Collinsia parviflora) and Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana), Spreading Phlox (Phlox diffusa), Rock Penstemon (Penstemon rupicola), more Nine-leaf Desert Parsley and Wild Strawberry, and Western Buttercup (Ranunculus occidentalis).
