Bistort

Another new wildflower I encountered on my recent road trip was the Bistort (Bistorta bistortoides), belonging to the Buckwheat family. This common wildflower was growing everywhere along the Mount Evans Highway (Colorado). This little wildflower grows 8″ to 24″ high, and it’s flowers are in clusters 1/2-inch to 1-inch wide. It grows in both the Subalpine and Alpine areas, and are especially common in the high meadows and in the moist tundra areas. Here are a few images I captured:

As I continue the tedious task of editing my trip photos, I’ll be featuring more wildflowers soon.
