This is a bloom on the Salmonberry plant, Rubus spectabilis.

I photographed this along the Tanner Creek Trail to Wahclella Falls.

Photo: Rotated, Cropped, Levels, Resized, Sharpened.

Salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis)
Rose Family

Along stream or wet ground of woods


1. Salmonberry is a relative of the raspberry and blackberry. It grows 4-10 feet tall, and has woody stems.
2. Prickles near bottom stems but sparse higher up. Serrated margins on 3-5 pinnate leaflets.
3. Single 1" magenta flowers bloom in April.
4. Large round orange to red (salmon) berry in late spring.

Northwest salmon spawn in streams the same time as these blooms appear. Edible berry dried, cooked or raw.

Hello Lori,
Very colorful image showing good depth, the lighting is great as it allows the minutest part of the center to be evenly exposed with the outer petals.
Very nice...

Ecxellent macro shot Lori.
Just inside the flower.
Excellent POV with good details and colors.

Great colours and close up, though focus depth is not good enough. Ori

Hi Lori, Great colors, Bg, DOV, excellent shows great details, Great composed and capture. TFS Kyle

The lower petals are in soft focus, in my opinion. The color of this flower is, however, very attractive.

  • Great

I love this one Lori, the petals look so pretty and sharp, especially seeing the veins in them. Love the colours too.
So it is part of the rose and blackberry families - a new one to me.
Good composition too, well done.
