I found this shrub growing in the Washington Cascades. I looked through some field guides looking for similar flowers and am stumped! Any help appreciated.

Hi and welcome, I'm new here also

All I know is copperbush. We went there for our 30 yr anniversary and I couldn't believe those flowers!
There were so many cool flowers out there. Most didn't even look real, they were so unusual

It sure likes the Copperbush...
All Thinkgs Plants has a listing for the plant here:
Copperbush (Elliottia pyroliflorus)

If that is the correct ID, you can add your photo to the database and you will earn acorns!

Go to this page:
