(Clarkia elegans) Native to the Pacific Northwest, easy growing Mountain Garland Clarkia is one of my favorite American wildflowers. The multiple flower stems are covered with ruffled ribbons of small blossoms, each shaped like tiny informal roses. These fluffy 2 to 3 foot tall wands of color fill the late spring garden in pretty soft shades of coral, salmon, rose-pink, lilac and pure white. Beautifully adapted to home gardens, the abundant graceful blooms are perfect for informal bouquets. Monet would have loved them in his Giverny gardens!
