White Flower in the Cascade Mountains
Unusual White Flower growing wild in the Cascade Mountains. I don't know the name of it. As far as the My Story part, I had parked my car on the shoulder of the highway and decided that I would walk up the hillside to see more about these flowers. I had been watching them each year for about 15 or 20 years, thinking that some day I would photograph them. I never did. One day I just decided I had waited long enough. I was a fair distance from the highway when a State Trooper drove up to my truck. I thought I was going to get a ticket for parking on the shoulder. I walked back to my truck, and he said, "Are you OK?" I explained that yes I was, and about waiting so long to photograph the flowers. I had my camera with me, and I think I am a fairly believable person. Anyway, he wasn't mean at all. In fact he told me where I could go and turn off the highway just about a half mile from there, and that there were zillions of the same type of flower. I followed his advice and he was correct. He was very nice. I got this picture that day, and I used my ArcSoft2 photo program, and added a bit of oil paint1 technique. I took some close up like this one, and some from a distance showing the surrounding area. That I get into these type of situations addresses "My Life As" a photographer and nature lover. Sightseeing is one of the most fun things I do. Can someone tell me the name of this flower, or seed pod, or whatever it is? I don't want to put it on the FLOWERS group if it is not a flower, or if it is unidentified. I put it on ID Please group as well.(278unusualwhitewildfloweraaoil1) This is the ID I got: This is the inflorescence of a plant in the lily family (Liliaceae), I believe it is a Turk's Cap lily, Xerophyllum tenax. This additional comment and information came in later, but I am just now getting around to adding it here. It is also in the comment below from Dreyer Family. I believe urtica is correct that this is Xerophyllum tenax -but I the common name is Bear Grass or Indiana Basket Grass. Turk's cap lilly is a real flower - it's very different. Beatutiful image!

Taken in November at Our Lady's Hospice grounds, Harold's Cross From Wikipedia: Fatsia is a small genus of three species of evergreen shrubs native to southern Japan and Taiwan. They have stout, sparsely branched stems bearing spirally-arranged, large leathery, palmately lobed leaves 20-50 cm in width, on a petiole up to 50 cm long, and small creamy-white flowers in dense terminal compound umbels in late autumn or early winter, followed by small black fruit. Fatsia japonica, known as Fatsi or Japanese Aralia (also occasionally as glossy-leaved paper plant, false castor oil plant, fig-leaf palm), is a shrub growing to 3-6 m tall. The leaves have 7-9 broad lobes, divided to half or two-thirds of the way to the base of the leaf; the lobes are edged with coarse, blunt teeth. It is native to southern Japan. The name "Fatsi" is older Japanese, meaning 'eight' (in present-day Japanese hachi), referring to the eight lobes. ?Fatshedera lizei is an inter-generic hybrid of flowering plants, commonly known as tree ivy or aralia ivy. It was created by hybridizing Fatsia japonica 'Moserii' (Moser's Japanese Fatsia, the seed parent) and Hedera helix (Common Ivy, the pollen parent) at the Lize Freres tree nursery at Nantes in France in 1912. Its generic name is derived from the names of the two parent genera. The plant combines the shrubby shape of Fatsia with the five-lobed leaves of Hedera. As a shrub, Fatshedera can grow up to 1.2 m tall, above which the weight of the fairly weak branches makes them tend to bend over. It can however also be tied to a support and grow into a vine up to 3-4 m tall; unlike Hedera, it does not readily climb without assistance. The leaf blades are 7-25 cm long and broad, with a 5-20 cm petiole. The flowers are 4-6 mm diameter, yellowish-white, produced in late autumn or early winter in dense umbels; they are sterile and do not produce any fruit.
