Darlingtonia Wayside

Darlingtonia State Natural Site

Darlingtonia State Natural Site is the only Oregon state park dedicated to the protection of a single plant species.Visit this Oregon weekend, you will be glade you did. Located just north of Florence it is a must see. This is one of our favorite places. The site is relatively small but has a wide variety of plant life. There are picnic tables and rest rooms available.

There is a small trail that takes you through the area to see the pitcher plants. This is the only carnivorous plant in Oregon. Rhododendron, spruce, cedar and shore pine can also be found here.

Darlingtonia Plant

This site is a beautiful place all year around. During the spring the flowers are in bloom and wonderful to see. During the winter the evergreens make this spot an oasis from the winter weather. Take 30 or 40 minutes to visit this site you will be glad you did.
