Click on the common names to see images and information about each species.

These Common names were taken from the references cited on the Welcome page, with a bias toward the names that are most frequently used for plants of the Rock Mountains. Common names are often ambiguous with one name referring to more than one species. An attempt was made in these tables to avoid ambiguity but there are still plenty of cases in which it was unavoidable.
