Frosted Bunchberry Leaves

    Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis) is a low growing ground cover that is related to the Dogwood, which is a tree in some parts of North America.   It is sometimes called “Dwarf Dogwood”.  It is quite common growing in the forest floors in the Robson Valley.  Its flower is similar to that of the dogwood and it develops into bright red berries that cluster in a clump, thus the name of Bunchberry.

    I have taken many photos of the Bunchberry plant in flower and with its berries, but I think this is the first time that I have taken a photo of the leaves in their autumn coloration.  It is quite a nice subdued purplish color and the frost along the edges make for a nice photo.
