The summer of 2021 has been exceptionally dry in Utah. Despite this several hardy wildflowers are flowering along hiking trails at high elevations east of Salt Lake City.

Think of the water that could be saved by replacement of grass lawns with attractive plants like these.

Sticky Geranium (Geranium viscosissimum)
Lewis Flax (Linum lewisii)
Parsnipflower Buckwheat (Eriogonum heracleoides)
