POTD: Bitterroot

Bozeman, Montana

This isn’t an early spring flower, in fact there are plenty of them out right now. But I’m posting this photo from some years ago because I like it better than the ones I’ve taken this year. Bitterroot is the Montana state flower. Having no particularly visible leaves and buds on short stems that seem to lay right on the ground, the plants look like almost nothing except when they are blooming. Then they are quite spectacular.
