These beautiful and colorful wildflowers are found throughout the more temperate zones of the world. The name “Hound’s Tongue” refers to their broad leaves. The plants grow 2’ – 3’ tall and the flower heads (blue, purple and maroon) are on tall arching wands.
Blooms – April/May through August in moist locations.

    This is a great composition, the branch adds elegance to the flowers

  • The meadow was covered by these wildflowers but they are so tiny that I had to focus on a small area. This one spot caught my eye. Thank You Kala.

    Beautifully captured wildflower! Love the colors!

  • I am always excited to see the Hound’s Tongue appear. Because it pops up before some of the grasses it has more contrast with the winter landscape. Thank You Lynn
