Locality: USA - Colorado - Along a stream in a boggy area above Pass Lake, Summit County, Colorado at about 11,800 feet elevation.
Photographer: Jane Hendrix
Note: Here is a more compact specimen. This seed did not have the luxury of a streamside location. The microclimate in this rocky area is drier than that along the nearby stream which is reflected in the shorter stature of the plant and especially in its smaller leaves.
