- Taxus brevifolia (never seen one in the wild, though I know people who have seen it).
- Calypso bulbosa (seen it a few times. Beautiful little orchids. There is/was a whole colony at Big Lagoon, but they seem to have disappeared--seasonal thing? hope so.)
- Euonymus occidentalis (Seen only one growing wild up the street, but the neighbors recently cut back the whole area, euonymus and all)

Ghost Orchids of Humboldt County
I stumbled across an article about ghost orchids (click on the link for info and a beautiful photo). It made me begin to think about those mysterious plants, to me anyway, that reside right here in Humboldt County.
