Golden Banner


Golden Banner (Thermopsis montana) is an early string flower that grows in open woodlands, meadows, as well as around Aspen trunks. A member of the pea family, it is often confused with Lupine, which is purple. Golden Banner has been quite prolific this year. This specimen was found on the Evergreen Mountain Trail.

Thank you! I found some flowers this weekend during our camp out and was trying to figure out what they were. You're a genius!
