POTD: Lance-Leaved Stonecrop

Lance-Leaved Stonecrop
Bozeman, Montana
2011

This flower definitely prefers the drier rockier areas, and it is a succulent, a characteristic I always associate with desert plants. But it actually grows in a range that extends from New Mexico all the way to southern Alaska and the Yukon. The bright yellow color of the flower in this photo was enhanced not by Photoshop but by the setting sun which was casting a yellow glow on everything.
