Default Piperia candida

Very similar to the the rather common Alaskan Piperia, Piperia unalascensis, but with white flowers. These were photographed in the Greenwater area north of Mount Rainier.

The thrill of finding them and seeing them in the wild is hard to describe, Hannah. Thanks.

That is a cute one! The name caught my eye...so close to Piper, as in piper nigrum, one of my plants. Great photography, as always!
