I think that the Prairie Smoke wildflower is one of the prettiest wildflower that I have ever seen. It is as unique when it blooms as when it seeds.

I’ve seen the Prairie Smoke at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park a couple of times. I do not see it every year. It is also known as “Old Man’s Whiskers” which is very evident in the bottom photograph which shows what it looks like when it seeds.

The Prairie Smoke grows to about 12″ tall with 3/4″, hairy, dusty-rose flowers. The seeds have long (about 2″), showy, purplish plumes.


I think it is just exquisite, what do you think?
