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!

Thumbs up Do you know how to add the image to the All Things Plants database?

Go to this page:
Copperbush (Elliottia pyroliflorus)

Look for 'Adding Actions'

Then 'Upload a photo' and follow the directions. Thumbs up
