A Gallery of Wildflowers in Olympic National Park

Olympic National Park

From massive conifers over 20 stories tall, to minute clumps of pink Douglasia prying a life out of rocky peaks, the Olympic Peninsula and Olympic National Park boast an amazing diversity of plant life. Over 1,450 types of vascular plants grow on the Peninsula, nearly the same number as the British Isles—an area 30 times larger. In addition, hundreds of species of non-vascular mosses, liverworts and hornworts also live here. Olympic also hosts a wide array of wildflowers throughout its elevations making it one of the world's most diverse wildflower population in the world.
