Arrowleaf Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza sagittata (Pursh) Nutt.)
Arrowleaf Balsamroot has beautiful, bright yellow flowers: in fact, another common name for it is “Oregon sunflower”. They are the most abundant wildflower found on our Montana property. The leaves are arrow shaped and can be from two-thirds to one and two-thirds of a foot long. The leaf blades are fuzzy, especially on the top (adaxial) side.
We found them growing up on the arrid windswept hill as well as down in the wooded draw where there is more moisture.
