Fringecup All Over the Trail

Fringecup is a native plant that is profusely blooming along the Chehalis Western Trail in Olympia, Washington.

It has fuzzy heart shaped leaves, and spikes of greenish-white to reddish flowers. Believe it or not, gardeners, this plant is slug resistant! Maybe we should intersperse it with our veggies?

Occasionally fringecup will spread aggressively, and during mild winters it is evergreen. Might make a great ground cover, what do you think?
