Bog Planting Update No. 2

The bog plant area is coming along very nicely. The Monkeyflowers (Mimulus sp.) and rushes (Carex sp.) are getting bigger and spreading nicely. The Yerba Mansa (Anemopsis californica) is putting out runners all over the place. And the Lobelias are getting bigger, hopefully getting ready to put up flower stalks.

Most exciting to me is that the Stream Orchid (Epipactis gigantea) is blooming. The plants are not yet living up to their specific epithet ("gigantea") as they are only about 6 inches tall, but it is really great that they are blooming their first year in the bog.
