This one seems kind of rare. It wasn’t in any of our wildflower guides (and we’ve been amassing quite a collection). We finally found it online using this very cool site. Unfortunately, other than the family, and the fact that it is quite striking, we don’t know much about it. Maybe you do?
Differentiated from the similar Ocean Spray by its compound leaves. (more…)
Not to be confused with Campanula rotundifolia aka Harebell. Mountain beaver are said to be particularly fond of this native plant.
A lot of thistles are non-native and often invasive. This one is neither. info and another pic…
