About Today’s Photo:
Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis) is still in bloom at higher elevations. This low growing member of the dogwood family grows in clonal colonies on the forest floor. It produces bunches of bright red berries that are apparently edible with a mild apple flavor (I’ll have to give ’em a try…)
