A collection of flora from the pacific wonderland.

Pearly Everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacea)

Bluff Lake Trail, Mt. Adams N.W. , WA, 8/2013.

Bluff Lake Trail, Yakama Nation, Mt. Adams , WA, 8/2013.

We’ve been hiking on Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams and in the Gorge the last few weeks and have been seeing these everywhere, usually in large  bunches.  We’ve seen them on roadsides, trail sides and lower-elevation meadows.

Called “everlasting” because of the dried flower’s longevity, which makes them useful (and common) in dried flower arrangements.  They are common throughout  North America, Europe and Asia.
