Rusty Menziesia Growth
Menziesia ferruginea

I first noticed this type of growth last summer. It seems more common than I realized as I have seen it a number of times in different locations this summer. I am not sure what causes it.

Location: Aleutkina Bay, near Sitka, Alaska

Previous: Scurvy Grass (Cochlearia officinalis)
