Wildflowers of the Lower Stein Valley, Lytton, BC.

These wildflowers were photographed in the first 5 km of the lower Stein Valley, during a field trip with Botany BC on May 28, 2005. The trail is accessed by taking a car/passenger reaction ferry a few km north of Lytton, on the road to Lillouet.

Many thanks to Sharon Godkin for help in identifying the plants! In some cases, the species are hard to identify. Please let me know if there are some plants that are misidentified.

To view the flower in half size, move your mouse over the thumbnail. If you want to download the half size images, add an address like "DSCN9961e.JPG" after the site address (replacing index.htm if it exists), then invoke "Save Image As" with the right mouse button. Replace 9961 with the 4-digit number under the photo. If you want the full size image (up to 2048 x 1536 pixels) or you want associated images showing the leaves or habitat of each plant, please email me.

The camera used is a 2002 Nikon Coolpix 885, typically in macro mode. The page numbers refer to "Plants of Southern Interior British Columbia", Parish, Coupe and Lloyd, Lone Pine Publishing, 1996, where the plants are described.
