The first thing I learned is that the wildflowers are classified into four colors: white, yellow, red, and blue. Of course, there is a wide range of reds (like pinks) and blues (like purples). Therefore, I have organized this post by those categories. I have been studying the book and attempted to identify the ones we photographed. Anyone who reads this probably knows a lot more about horticulture than I do, so feel free to correct anything that I may have misidentified!
This is by no means an all inclusive list of all of the wildflowers, just the ones we saw and photographed! Here are some of our favorites.
Common (tansy) Yarrow
Arrowleaf ragwort (senecio)
Fender's (Groundsel) Ragwort
Alpine false springparsley
Sulphur-flower (subalpine) buckwheat
Common gaillardia (blanket flower)
Black-eyed Susan (rudbeckia)
Little (bush) sunflower
Wyoming Indian paintbrush.
Not sure of this one, but think it may a columbine.
Not sure on this one either, but I loved their bright orange colors! Maybe blanket flower.
Alpine (mountain) laurel.
Bluebell bellflower (common harebell).
I really enjoyed learning more about wildflowers!
