    Dear Daniel. I always read you and in several ocassions share your posts in my blog. It”s a lovely plant as many of the mallow family. As you, with age, I find nice those plants it”s not necessary to bend to photograph them. Good photo. Thanks for sharing.

    Wonderful picture of a wonderful species. Another species, Iliamna remota is hardy in Madison, WI and does beautifully here. It flowers much of the season.

    Oh the scourge of tiny, ground-hugging plants! They’re beautiful, I imagine, but so hard to get to. 🙂 I lie the way you displayed the hollyhock’s beauty without much dramatization – it has a straightforward simplicity, a simple elegance. One look at this and even not knowing the plant, I immediately thought Malvas. Hopefully I will see this one day, on the other side of the mountains. It was good to include the bee link, too.

    They’re flowering now in the Eagle Creek Fire zone on the high ridges of the Columbia Gorge in Oregon. “Rivularis” and “stream bank” seem somewhat restrictive names. “Mountain” is more apt.

    Certainly worth mentioning that this species, by-and-large, is a fire obligate. It seed banks for decades and then bursts forth after fire with sometimes stunning displays!
