Wildflower Report for Dog Mountain

LocationDog Mountain
ReporterJen Travers
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.
