Mountain Sagewort is a tall, stringy plant which we saw on the tundra in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer. Sagewort grows from 20 to 60 cm tall with yellow and green wide, nodding flower heads.

When I first saw the Mountain Sagewort, I thought it was dying because it was so droopy. But this is just how it grows on rocky slopes and grassy meadows. We saw it up on the tundra at about 11,000 feet.

Have you ever seen a Mountain Sagewort?

    The hard stony background sets off so well the delicate nature of the subject. A beautiful portrait!
