Pretty Little Umbrellas

This gallery contains 2 photos. Just don’t eat or touch kalmia latifolia, aka mountain laurel; all parts are poisonous! They are pretty in pink, and resemble the underside (“ribs”) of umbrellas. Photographed at UBC Botanical Garden in early June.

Red, White, and Pink Umbrella-Like Flowers

Also available in white (the honeybee is a bonus, and one of the few creatures that isn’t — and shouldn’t — have a bad reaction to mountain laurel).
