Celebrating Wildflowers: A brief history

In 1991 the Celebrating Wildflowers program was initiated in the Pacific Northwest "to promote conservation and appreciation of wildflowers and their habitats." In 2002, Rare Care assumed the leadership role in the Seattle area. For nearly a decade, we celebrated the aesthetic, recreational, biological, medicinal and economic values of Washington State's wildflowers by hosting an annual event full of hands-on activities. Currently, Rare Care presents several of these activities at other festivals and outreach events in the Seattle area.

Some people think these flowers look like little elephant heads, so one of the common names for Pedicularis groenlandica is elephanthead lousewort. It's related to a rare plant that grows only on or near Mt. Rainier. Guess what that one's called? Mt. Rainier lousewort, of course (Pedicularis rainierensis)!
