Artist's Description

12/2/11 – Featured in the WILDFLOWERS OF NORTH AMERICA Group.

I these beautiful Ragwort (Senecioneae Jacobaea) flowers growing in profusion along the North Fork of the Flathead River at Great Northern Flats, which is a favorite departure point for rafters. After the Robert Fire in 2005, this area of Glacier Park was decimated. Now there are several varieties of wildflowers growing, to begin the cycle of new life. Although they look beautiful, Ragwort produces natural biocides (especially alkaloids) to deter or even kill animals that would eat them. [from the wikipedia article] For this reason, the state of Montana is trying to eradicate it. It’s interesting that the first of the new growth plants would be this weed, which is not native to the area.

Photo taken August 13, 2011 with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera, across the river from Glacier National Park, Montana (USA).
