    Could anyone help me ID this perennial flower that was growing along the Desolation Peak Trail in the North Cascades National Park in Washington State?

    It's an Antennaria that has gone to fruit. For specifics, might need to track down a species list for the trail and use process of elimination -- this is usually a tough group to ID to species.

    We like North Cascades Ntl Park and so your post caught my attn

    I looked online and the NPS has extensive species lists for N CASCADES ... one is a living list (ie ongoing updating)

    HOWEVER - the NPS says these lists don’t work well w Safari web browser so I’ll post the links when I’m near Chrome or other browser - thx

    It might be included in this list: List

    The Washington Native Plant Society has lists for many trails and sites.

    I've updated the Pacific Northwest Native Plants Resources entry for WNPS to include a link to those.

    Thank you so much for both list and links. It makes my trips up to Ross Lake more fun to botanize.
