Parnassia fimbriata (Grass of Parnassus)

August 22, 2007: Round Lake, Marion County, OR: On a spur of the moment Chris and I decided to take a drive into the mountains and check out a seep where we go occasionally to look at wildflowers. This is late in the season so we didn’t expect to find much. I was very pleased to find Parnassia fimbriata (Grass of Parnassus). Not uncommon yet I had not seen it before… maybe because it blooms late in the season or maybe because it is not common locally.
