Wildflowers aplenty in Interior Alaska

On a recent field trip I spotted numerous species of wildflowers in bloom. Here are just a few of the different flowers I spotted. All of these flowers were located within a two acre tract by the Tanana River

Shrubby Cinquefoil, also called Tundra Rose (Potentilla fruticosa)

Four-petalled Gentian (Gentianella propinqua)

Cow Parsnip  (Heracleum maximum also Heracleun Lanatum)

Arctic or Northern Goldenrod (Solidago multiradiata) 


Grass of Parnassus (Parnassia palustris)

Star Gentian (Swertia perennis)
