This beautiful lavender wildflower was growing in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer. I took a photograph of it but never posted it because I couldn’t identify it.

I think it is so pretty. Does anyone know what kind of wildflower it is?

    Stunning, Mel. Can’t help with ID.

    This may be Hornemann willowherb (Epilobium hornemannii) in the Evening-primrose family (Onagraceae). Do you have any more photos of the plant? The willowherbs (Epilobiums) can sometimes be difficult to tell apart. Thanks for your website!
