I thought this would be a good day for a macro so I’m calling this Macro Monday! There are some beautiful wild flowers in Rocky Mountain National Park. The one that really caught my eye were these bell-shaped flowers with really brilliant violet and pink colors! I’ve come to find out they are called “forget-me-nots” or also known as “lungwort,” “bluebells,” “languid-ladies,” or “lanceleaf chiming bells.” The latin name for these perennials is Mertensia lanceolata and they are native to the Central Rocky Mountain Region in the USA (CO, MT, ND, NE, NM, SD, UT, WY) and CAN (AB, MB, SK). There is your horticulture lesson for today!
