Common names for Hulsea algida include alpine hulsea, Pacific hulsea, alpine gold hulsea. The names tend to suggest a high-elevation grower, and indeed it is: this photograph was taken at 4000m (or 13 300 ft.). It is generally found in the western USA: California, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming (Utah is intriguingly absent).
The Jepson Manual provides its usual excellent description of the species: Hulsea algida. Frequent BPotD contributor Michael Charters has a page about it as well, with links to the meaning of the names (e.g., algida means “
golden cold” – see comments below): alpine gold hulsea. More photographs are available via CalPhotos.
