A wildflower in the primrose family. Each flower nods, with its pointed center aimed at the ground when fresh, and becomes more erect with age. It has four or five reflexed sepals in shades of pink, lavender, or white which lie back against the body of the flower.
Spotted at Government Meadows next to a stream.
The flowers of this species were considered good luck by the Nlaka'pamux people, who used them as amulets and love charms. Dodecatheon jeffreyi is named in honor of John Jeffrey.(Wikipedia)
