Pictured Wildflower: Quee's Crown Clementsia rhodantha
Wildflower Field notes: Unfortunately we were never able to find any patches of Queen's Crown in full bloom so a site visitor supplied the above photo. The flower color tends to be closer to pink than red... making it easy to differentiate it from King's Crown. 

Look for Queen's Crown at higher elevations in full sun to light shade in moist areas in clearings or near the base of bushes.
