Apr 20, 2012: Prosartes maculata

Prosartes maculata

Today's image was taken earlier today by Tony Maniezzo, the North American Gardens Curator at UBC Botanical Garden. This spotted mandarin was photographed in the Nantahala National Forest of North Carolina, USA, during one of the last few walks of the trip we are leading. While we sometimes encountered its relative Prosartes lanuginosa (yellow mandarin) on other walks, this was the only time we observed this species. Most references to this species will suggest it is named Disporum maculatum, now considered a synonym.
