    Hello Everyone,

    A special thank you to Daniel Mosquin and Ron B for identifying many of my plant pictures over the past several weeks. This will be my last post for now, until I have a chance to visit more PNW plants and take pictures.

    Do you know what this plant is? It has a single stem that the leaves grow directly from. The leaves have clear folds across the width of the leaf, in an accordion-like look. The leaves are arranged in a triangular pattern up the stem. The flower buds come in bunches.

    Location : Mount Seymour
    Elevation : 1000 m
    Season : Late July

    Jason

    Veratrum viride commonly called Indian Hellebore though not a hellebore at all; a really neat 'architectural plant'.

    Hey, I'll miss your great titles (and the plants). Are you sure there aren't some plants around Vancouver that you want the names for? :)
