I tried. I really did. But even after sending photos to every gardener and plant lover I thought might be able to assist, I was still unable to identify these three gems. Perhaps if I had taken photos in on the trail, in context, it may have helped. Or perhaps if they were not at the end of their blooming cycle. Whatever the reason, I am posting these without knowing what they are. If you have any clues, feel free to share them in the comments. 🙂
