    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone identify the following plants? They were all found in the trails of Burnaby Mountain, and have all become noticeable since early May.

    Pictures 1-2-3: These have a very distinct leaf arrangement, and are starting to cover more and more ground.

    Pictures 4-5: At first I thought these were rough-fruited fairybells (Prosartes trachycarpa), but the stripes and the way the leaves are pierced by the stems made me think maybe it's something different.

    Pictures 6-7: I only saw two of these plants, they seem pretty isolated.

    Picture 8: Another isolated looking plant.

    Thank you very much!

    Jason

    #4 & 5 is probably Streptopus

    1-3 I suspect are Impatiens glandulifera.

    Why are those not enchanter's nightshade?

    Otherwise we might be seeing Boykinia, if not some other saxifrage family plant. The last is a huckleberry.

    I see my strategy of being wrong on recent identifications to get others to correct me is working. Yes, I hadn't considered that - I should go spend some time with that plant.
