On our recent trip to Utah I saw lot of wildflowers, many that were new to me, and I took lots of pictures. I don't necessarily believe that this is the best way to showcase the pictures, but it's what I've come up with so far. They are in mostly alphabetical order...I hope you will enjoy them.
|Aster||Hopi Blanketflower||Unidentified blue flower||Blue penstemon|
|Claretcup||Cryptanth||Small-Leaf Geranium||Common Globemallow|
(ok, technically not a wildflower - planted by the settlers in Fruita)
|Desert Phlox||Longleaf Phlox||Rose Heath||Rushpink|
|Spectacle Pod||Stevia Dusty-Maiden||Stoneseed||Twinpod|
|Unidentified White Flower||Fragrant Sand Verbena||Yellow Milkvetch||Little Twistflower (placeholder)|
|Cliffrose||Dwarf Evening Primrose
(blooms for only one day)
|Rimrock Milkvetch||Woolly Locoweed
(alkaline in the plant can cause livestock to "go loco", can be fatal)
|Mahonia||Prickly Pear||Utah Penstemon|
aka Wild Rhubarb
|Bittercress||Eaton's Penstemon||Mormon Tea
Mormon settlers steeped the branches of this shrub to make a tea used to treat colds and congestion
|Prince's Plume||Prince's Plume and Canyonlands butte||Cliffrose and Partition Arch|
