Brad Sondahl's Pictures of Idaho Wildness
Wildflowers of the Clearwater and Panhandle Region:





Spring Beauties (Claytonia lanceolata). They are common in the woods.

  Arrowleaf Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza sagittata) grows on sunny exposed hillsides.  Called sunflowers locally.  Bloom in May.

Sagebrush Buttercup  Earliest spring flower. Grows in meadows, even in towns.

Dwarf Waterleaf (Hydrophyllum capitatum) These are common in fields, along roads. Lush early flower clusters, then die back.

Goosicus Familicus Just keeping you alert...

Grass Widows (Sisyrinchium inflatum) Grassy stems--prairie bloomers.  Here Little Canyon is in the background, near Nezperce.

Thanks to Bill Stillman for help with some identifications.
