leptotes (Delicate Townsendia)
Asteraceae (Sunflower Family)
Foothills to alpine. Woodlands, openings. Spring, summer.
The above two photographs were taken at Lone Mesa State Park, May 8, 2009. The top photograph shows Townsendia leptotes and Astragalus missouriensis and the photograph immediately above shows about two percent of a massive display of Townsendia leptotes along the roadside just west of the entrance to Lone Mesa State Park. This display is certainly the largest by far of any Townsendia growth that I have ever seen.
