Elegant rein orchid at Woodhus Slough

Catching up with communications in the Botany Group during July. This is from an email from Jocie to the group on July 4.

John B. discovered a nice patch of elegant rein orchid (Piperia elegans) at Woodhus Slough, and sent along these photos:

John says there were 12 plants in an area with about a 12 ft radius.

Here are a few other notes of interest from John:

  • The beggarticks at Woodhus Slough is not in bloom yet, whereas on Quadra in a bog at about 750 ft it is fully in bloom. Climate does strange things.
  • The clustered broomrape mentioned recently for the Comox Lake Bluffs is also on Quadra (west side, private shore).
