As amazing as the redwood trees, are the plants of the understory. When I was not looking up, I found myself crouching low or using my 400mm zoom to get close to the plants and flowers.
Oxalis or Redwood Sorrel was a clover-like plant that I found in abundance throughout the forest. This plant is edible and has a tangy, lemony taste.
Another common plant that I found flowering up and down the Pacific Northwest coastal region was thimbleberry.
Here are a few other of the flowering plants.
