Clintonia andrewsiana

This is one of the stars in the understory of the towering coastal redwoods, Sequioa sempervirens. Wide fleshy green leaves would not look out of place in the subtropics and that impression is only enhanced by the umbels of red flowers which become visually luscious blue-purple fruit. Much like the trees under which it grows, this too is supersized at least in comparison to its kin in the genus. This are not flowering size but they are nice plants.
