Interested in College in Alaska?

Sitka Valerian
Valeriana sitchensis

When I first saw this plant, I did not know what it was. Later along the trail I saw some blooming and thought that it was probably Sitka valerian. A check in the fieldguides after I got home seemed to confirm this thought.

Location: Harbor Mountain-Gavan Hill Trail, Sitka, Alaska

Previous: False Hellebore (Veratrum viride)
