CommentsAlthough it is too early for the balsamroot display that makes this mountain so famous, there are plenty of the little flowers blooming now- the last of the snow has just receded from the summit. Most abundant were prairie stars(Lithophragma), and the largest population of Dutchman's breeches (Dicentra cucullaria) that I have ever seen. Also blooming- Fritillary pudica, Fritillary lanceolata, Lomatium nudicale, Collinsia parviflora, Ribes sangineum, Mimulus alsinoides, Amelanchior alnifolia, Prunus emarginata, Cyanoglossum grande, and plenty of trilliums on the Augsperger trail. I will try to post a photo of a flower that has me currently stumped.
