Native plant of New England. Looks like a pinwheel. Strikingly vibrant colors.
In German: Eisenhut
Ranunculaceae, Desert Larkspar, seldom found in RRC. This plant is East of White Rock Hills just off the trail heading north.
I used my best judgement as to what this flower bush would be and I believe it to be a Dicentra (also known as bleeding heart flower). My dog in the picture is only 3 lbs (very small), he can be used as the measurement reference to the size of the bush.
Ranunculales is an order of flowering plants. Of necessity it contains the family Ranunculaceae, the buttercup family, because the name of the order is based on the name of a genus in that family. Ranunculales belongs to a paraphyletic group known as the basal eudicots. It is the most basal clade in this group; in other words, it is sister to the remaining eudicots. Widely known members include poppies, barberries, and buttercups.
