Powell Butte Nature Park, Portland, Oregon

My hosts in Oregon, Pamela Melcher and David Findlay took me for a short walk in a local nature park in the city of Portland as I’d expressed an interest in seeing one of the west coast Hydrophyllum species. Some species of these woodlanders are known as Indian salad, for obvious reasons, and the East coast species I grow are near the top of my list of favourite spring harvested greens, making a great base to a mixed species salad…and is one of the 80 in my book Around the World in 80 plants. I hope one day to get seed of the west coast species! Despite it being late in the season (early September) I was lucky to see a small patch (below)!
