Cercocarpus betuloides

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Rosids Rosales Rosaceae Cercocarpus

Cerocarpus betuloides flowerMountain Mahogany

In 2011 it bloomed in February and was essentially over by the end of February, but it can last to May. Noticed seed plumes in July. There’s a patch of this species on Cold Spring trail on the level ridge above the intersection with Hot Springs connector. Others are scattered up above the trees.

This species may be merged into C. montanus.

Fertilized flowers in Feb. turning into seed plumes?
