Flora Of Oregon's South Coast Gallery

With its year-round mild temperatures and (normally) high amounts of rainfall, Oregon's south coast is home to brilliant flowers both summer and winter, with some blooms appearing year-round in repeating waves of color. Whether it's January's brilliant pink camellias, the vivid yellow scotch broom that covers the hillsides and fields in March, the wildflowers of summer, the "naked ladies" and pampas grass of autumn, or the ever-cycling fuchsias and red-hot-pokers that return to bloom again and again through the year, there's always something beautiful to enjoy.

In addition to those plants strictly defined as "wildflowers", I've chosen to also include those found in so many places and in such proliferation as to be justifiably considered "wild." While we do indeed have wild rhododendrons, iris, and azaleas, the domestic dahlia insists on blooming even under extreme neglect, and the unstoppable fuchsia will pop up just about anywhere. (I have a large and healthy one growing up through my deck-- after numerous attempts to do away with it I finally surrendered, and it's blooming quite happily.)

I hope you'll enjoy this gallery of Curry County flora.
