  1. What a fascinating plant and what a tongue-twister of a name for it! I’ve learnt something new today 🤓

  2. Wow, what a unique picture. Thanks for sharing such interesting vegetation that we might not otherwise see where we live.

  3. Wow is right. Don’t remember seeing these when we were living in Oregon. You are so observant. I thank you for sharing as well.
