Not all treasures are silver and gold. A plethora of floral beauties have been discovered recently in the Ottawa Valley . . . from terrestrial orchids to a blaze of wood lilies . . .  from immense “Mufferaw” bloodroots to revered, dainty double hepaticas . . . from gentian meadows to mellow fields of Rudbeckia . . . From giant pinedrop woods to acres of unusual weeds . .  from dramatic color variants of red Trilliums to the holy grail of North American wildflowers, the elusive double Trilliums . .  and more.

An award winning photographer and neurotic plant explorer, recently honored by the OHA, will lead us around the valley with lots of horticultural tips and humorous anecdotes. Come see what treasures may be found near you right here in our biodiverse Ottawa Valley.
