Vancouveria hexandra / Family: Berberidaceae
June 17, 2009
I always study my books and the internet to learn about the plants and flowers that I may encounter while I'm traveling in a new area. There are usually some flowers that get my attention by either their looks or an odd name, I call them my "target plants"; this plant was one of those. I had seen Inside-Out Flower on our '98 trip, but I didn't get a good photo. I was happy to get a second chance when we stopped at Seward Park in Seattle shortly after we left the airport. It is an interesting-looking plant with an interesting name.
