Shaggy Horkelia: The 116th Flower of Spring & Summer! [Explore #39]

Shaggy Horkelia: The 116th Flower of Spring & Summer! [Explore #39]
What a surprise when I found these flowers! I was walking around the far side of our larger meadow one morning, not expecting to find anything new and I looked down right before I stepped on these! Here's another flower that isn't anything special unless you get close to it, but wow, isn't it a beauty?!

Shaggy Horkelia is an uncommon flower found in the Pacific Northwest which grows in open meadows in the late spring. There are about 19 species of this plant, which is in the rose family. They are similar to another plant that grows on our property called Sticky Cinquefoiil, and Horkelias are sometimes classified in the same genus.
