Pictured Wildflower: Elephantella Pedicularis groenlandica
Wildflower Field notes: This plant receives in name... Elephantella from its flowers. The upper lip of the flower curves upward similar to an Elephants trunk. Elephantella is easy to find. They seem to grow in "herds". It prefers wet, sunny areas along drainages, bogs, ponds or springs.
