NEW WILDFLOWERS IN THE GALLERIES SECTION

The total varietes now comes to around 238 between Flowers of the Foothills to Alpine Wildflowers–right up to Kings Peak.  I’ll insert one new foothill variety below.
It is the PURPLE SALSIFY, Tragopogon porrifolius.  Yellow Salsify is very common in the foothills, originating from Europe.  The purple variety is a bit rare.  The two species hybridize creating variations. Trapogogon  is Greek for “goat’s beard.”  To see the common yellow and this rare purple variety go to SALSIFY.
