This is one of my favorite native plants to find in the spring. I’ve seen flowers that are snow white, to pale pink, to deep rose pink as this beautiful one is. Meriwether Lewis brought specimens back from the Lewis and Clark expedition, so the genus was named Lewisia is in his honor, a cool bit of 200+ year-old history.
Thanks for the picture. Never saw the plant while I was in the Big Horns. The Lord has beautiful designs in all our plants
They not a high mountain flower, more of a prairie flower.
Wanted to let you know that what you write about is even helpful here in MO. We just bought 6 bulls here in MO that came out of CO from T-Heart Ranch. They were for sale here in MO because they failed their PAP test. Because I had read your post on PAP testing I understood what they meant! Thanks Carol!
Hey, that’s awesome! Glad I could help!
I’ve never saw a Bitterroot plant, now I want one!
