Plant Identification No. 1

With 5 acres in the mountain foothills of Western Washington we have a wide variety of flora on our property. It’s our goal to identify as many plants as we can.

I’ve started taking pictures of the plants as we walk with the goal of identifying them. Luckily many are flowering these days which makes identification significantly easier.

So far I believe we’ve positively identified:

Orange Honeysuckle (Lonicera ciliosa)

Orange Honeysuckle
Orange Honeysuckle
Orange Honeysuck
Orange Honeysuckle

Thimbleberry  (Rubus parviflorus)

Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica)

I’ll add pictures to the Identifying Plants page/gallery.

Any help in identifying unlabeled plants (or correcting existing identifications) would be welcome.
