Shooting Star

Dodecatheon hendersonii of the Primulaceae family


This is an oval leaf Shooting Star in the Primrose family. Shooting stars are an example of 'buzz pollination'. Pollen is dislodged into the stamen tube by sound waves from the buzzing of bees.


This Shooting Star likes grassy meadows near Oaks. These were spotted at Catherine's Creek in the Columbia Gorge near White Salmon, Washington
