A favorite of Harvey Manning. On a 2-hour walk up the Tenday Creek trail, he noted lupine, strawberry, Jacob’s ladder, groundsel, desert parsley, sunflower, yarrow, cinquefoil, clover, penstemon, camas, thistle, larkspur, speedwell, spring beauty, vetch, phlox, violet, bistort, pussytoes, paintbrush, wandering daisy, forget-me-not, meadow parsley, elephant’s head, white bog orchid, buttercup, monkeyflower, and false hellebore. The flowering begins in May, runs through its repertoire until July, and then the cows take over.
