Geum triflorum. Elk Meadow near Stanley, Idaho
I spotted just two plants of Geum triflorum or Old Man’s Whiskers gone to seed along the sunny slope of Mt. Townsend, at about 5500'.
Geum triflorum, (three-flowered avens, old man's whiskers, or prairie smoke) is a spring perennial herbaceous plant of North America from northern Canada to California and east to New York.
