Flower

This plant is better recognized by its leaf than the flower, as the distinctive leaf is visible on moist forest floors throughout the summer. The flower is shy and difficult to see and appears in April. It is common on the western slopes of the Cascades and in the coast range, Washington to California. Moist shaded areas are its favorite location.

Peck uses the common name Oregon Oxalis while it is listed as Redwood Sorrel in Wikipedia.
