Side Sorrel



Description:

You usually see the clover–like leaves of Wood Sorrel (Oxalis oregana) from the top, because this low–growing herb spreads horizontally to make the most of scarce sunlight in the dense Oregon forest.

Sometimes while you’re looking to the high side of a trail and a sunbeam breaks through the forest canopy, you can witness this rare side–on view.

But if the sunbeam lasts a half–dozen minutes or so, the bashful Wood Sorrel folds its leaves up to avoid sunburn, making this view all the more rare.
