Piggy-Back Plant, Tolmiea menziesii

This perennial likes moist shady spots and is found near the creek on our property. Here is what the flower buds look like - photo taken April 17, 2010

Fully formed flowers. This photo was taken in May, 2008


After the flowers have died back, capsules are full of tiny seeds for next year.  Photo taken June, 2016

I just found out that if you click on the photo it enlarges it for you - I can see the tiny hairs on the bud and flowers. Amazing!

Keep them coming because these are better than most plant I.D. books available. Perhaps you should publish a book on plant I.D.?
