    Often the NW Wildflowers photos are so close-up that they fail to impart a more general visual understanding of the plant overall. Please step back a few inches, we need to see the whole plant with foliage and flowers, to really get an impression about what a plant is all about.

    • Thanks for the constructive criticism. In many cases, we’re going back and including extra photos to show both close ups and shots that show the entire plants for better identification. Our first priority, however, is quality photos, and in this case, the only one that passed our aesthetic test was this close up. If we happen upon another specimen, we’ll try to get a better medium shot.

    Is this a dwarf plant 4-5″ tall, or a tall plant 3′ tall, the ultra-closeup gives few clues,

    • As I remember, this was closer to 3 feet.
