    Hi,

    Would you be able to identify the following 3 plants? They were all found on Burnaby Mountain trails recently. If possible, could you tell me what features / structures you see on the plants that help you to identify the species, so that I can learn how to identify plants. Thanks! Jason

    Features used in identification in these instances would include: leaf arrangement, leaf shape, leaf texture, leaf margin, leaf venation, leaf colour, leaf/stem/petiole armaments (or lack thereof), petiole colour, plant height, plant location, and plant habitat.
