Bluebells. I'm hoping for a rainy year so they will really grow.

I wish I could have a whole meadow with flax, wild iris, and columbine.

We have been blessed with some fantastic photos from BeerGodROX recently!
I am doing a cut and paste from the recent post to add to this thread some of the flowers they have identified.

To see the original post and entertaining commentary go to viewtopic.php?f=97&t=173414

ALL PHOTOS BY BeerGodROX, thanks so much for these

Geranium (Geranium caespitosum)

Indian Paintbrush - or Giant Red Paintbrush (Castilleja miniata)

This is an interesting plant in that it is "semi-parasitic" in that it's roots draw some sustenance from the roots of plants it is near!
The red part of the flower does not have chlorophyll and the green parts do not generate enough to sustain the plant.
That explains why it can not be successfully taken from the wild and transplanted in a garden.
See how fuzzy it is!
Image

This is Low Penstemon - one of MANY penstemon flowers in the Figwort family.
Image

Taper-leaved Penstemon (Penstemon attenuatus)
Image


Rough Wallflower - a member of the mustard family (Erysimum asperum)

Many-flowered Puccoon! (Not kidding!)
It is in the Forget-Me-Not family (Lithospermum multiflorum)

Green Gentian - or Monument Plant (Frasera speciosa)

Scarlet Gilia, sometimes called Sky Trumpet(Ipomopsis aggregata)

Death Camas. Beautiful flower, but all parts of this plant are poisonous. Can be fatal to livestock. Eating the bulbs, which have be mistaken for onions, have caused human deaths.

There's a flower here that I've never seen before. It grows 2-3 feet tall with dozens of tiny blue flowers. It forms small prickly seed pods. It's a perrenial.
