Spreading patch by the big turn in Red Hill trail where the soil turns red.
Columbines looked great today!
One of the "bleeding hearts..."
Called "Oregon grape" -- I'll have to look this one up!
Growing on slope near Garry oak and Douglas fir trees.
Would like any verification or correction. :)
Ranunculales is an order of flowering plants. Of necessity it contains the family Ranunculaceae, the buttercup family, because the name of the order is based on the name of a genus in that family. Ranunculales belongs to a paraphyletic group known as the basal eudicots. It is the most basal clade in this group; in other words, it is sister to the remaining eudicots. Widely known members include poppies, barberries, and buttercups.
