Henderson's Horkelia

A foggy near-ground view from just below the top of Mount Ashland, Oregon.  In this view is a close up of the rare Henderson's horkelia (Horkelia hendersonii) just before bloom & covered in water droplets.


There are four known populations in southern Oregon, including Mount Ashland, and one population south of the border in Siskiyou County, California. It is a resident of dry forest habitat in the granite soils of the Klamath Mountains. This is a perennial herb producing a low mat of hairy, glandular gray-green foliage about a woody base. The leaves are cylindrical and sometimes tapering to a point, growing erect in a patch around the caudex. Each leaf is 3 to 8 centimeters long and is made up of densely spaced pairs of minutely toothed leaflets. The leaflets are coated in silky hairs. The inflorescence is a dense array flowers atop an erect stalk, each flower made up of five hairy, pointed sepals and five smaller, more delicate white petals.

Although few populations of the plant are known to exist, they are not in imminent danger of destruction and a federal listing as an endangered or threatened species was declined in 2003. The Mount Ashland populations of this plant are sometimes threatened by recreational activities at that site, including skiing and maintenance of ski facilities, and off-road vehicle use.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
