holodiscusleaves

Oceanspray, Holodiscus discolor, one of the more common shrubs, blushing. The rounded teeth and prominent veins on the minutely hairy leaves are an easy way to identify this plant even when not in flower.

Dwarf rose, Rosa gymnocarpa, which is difficult to distinguish from other rose species, except when fruiting in fall. The naked tip of the rose hip, instead of having dried sepals that stay on like other roses, gives its' identity away. Dwarf rose hips tend to be smaller in size than other species too.

Bigleaf maple leaf, Acer macrophyllum, along the trail near Mission Creek and Devils Gulch. Bigleaf maple is one of the largest native deciduous trees we have, as well as having the largest leaves.

You can perhaps see why this shrub is named common snowberry, Symphoricarpos albus, one of the few plants with pure white berries.

Long after the flowers have gone and even the seeds, this silvercrown skeleton, Cacaliopsis nardosmia (Luina nardosmia) is just waiting for snow.
