This post is a simple plea for help.
We were on the hike to the nacimiento, the spring that supplies a local town with their water.
I noticed a number of ground-level flowering plants. I apologize for the quality of some of these photos, but they’re the best available. Here’s the first one.
The next was similar, but the flowering habit was more multiple.
The trail along here was steep and well shaded.
Here’s a third plant.
Another species, but in the same ground-hugging habit.
They look tantalizingly familiar, like house or greenhouse plants I’ve seen here or there.
Here’s another view of the trail.
Here’s one last close-up.
So what are they? I’ve tried dropping these pictures into the google image “search” function. No luck there.
Perhaps you can help. If you want higher resolution photos, just ask for them. If you have a friend who knows tropical flowering plants, maybe you could pick their brains.
Help solve some mysteries!
