    Daniel is this a scan of the plant? It’s gorgeous — that black background really punches up the color

    I love this dramatic version of our own native salmon berry! A beautiful member of this species resides in the native garden, n’est pas?

    Maureen, yes, this is a scan (and yes, elizabeth, this is from the plant in the Native Garden – surreptitiously snipped for me to scan at home for BPotD since I ran out of time on Friday to take a photograph of it).

    This comment is late in the day (Sept 2009) but it’s worth noting that the origin of this plant is on record. According to the accession records of the University of Washington Arboretum, it was found by Dr. R. C. Creelman of Bremerton, Washington about May 1, 1961, at the mouth of the Duckabush River, which falls into the Hood Canal on the east side of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. The Arboretum acquired their specimen in 1963 and the cultivar name used in Brian Mulligan’s 1977 catalog of the Arboretum’s collection is ‘Olympic’, not ‘Olympic Double’.

    Wow, I’ll never look at our little salmonberry bush the same way — this variety is doubly beautiful! Thanks for sharing this photo.

    I’m thrilled to have at last identified this pretty shrub that is busily flowering today, in my coastal garden in Wales!Thanks for the background info. ….Teresa.
