These thistles are absolutely stunning. Pink and prickly, the roses of the dry grassland. Unfortunately almost all the Cirsium species you come across in BC are invasive weeds from elsewhere.
Just a bit of scenery from beautiful British Columbia.
This is a little Corydalis blooming in a rock pile on top the mountain. I posted it blooming four months ago on the lakeshore:http://milos-garden.tumblr.com/image/83626772019
Surprised to find these showy daisy blooming towards the end of August.it was quite high elevation on the mountain though, down in the valley you’d see Erigeron speciosus blooming in the spring !
A very cool dark leaf member of the carrot family. I collected the seeds because it would make a good ornamental plant in the garden ! ID narrowed it down to the genus Osmorhiza, known as the sweet-cicelys.
Purple loosestrife is an invasive weed choking out moist plant habitats in North America. Sure is pretty though.
White heath asters are some of my favourite late summer flowers ! I was out kayaking recently and I stopped on an island in the river. While looking around I alighted upon an entire field of these.Symphyotrichum ericoides.
Pearly everlasting from on the mountain. Makes a great cut flower too, Anaphalis margaritacea.
The hills are blue right now with bell flowers.Campanula rotundifolia is native across both North America and Europe where they are called variously harebells or bluebells.
Wow the ‘Prairie Glow’ Rudbeckias are filled with an incredible amount of flowers right now.
