Native Plants at McIver Park

Striped Coralroot, Corallorrhiza striata

We didn't have the time for a long hike on our short trip, but we took the dogs on numerous walks through the campground. McIver Park has some very nice native plants. I was really impressed with the fruit on the Indian Plum, it glowed yellow-orange in the sun. The Man of the house spotted a very cool flower that I haven't seen before, we snapped photos (not very good ones) and emailed them off to our friend Donald who helped me to quickly identify it as Striped Coralroot!

Indian Plum, Oemleria cerasiformis
