Elephant Head

$20.00

Pedicularis groenlandica Retz 

Elephanthead loves wet meadows and the borders of lakes and 
streams. It prefers the region about timberline, and in sedgy upland 
swampy places it supplies masses of rich color. Flowers, stems, and 
leaves are often of almost the same tone. The curious flower resembles 
an elephants head with the trunk raised. 

This plant and a similar one growing in California have been re- 
ferred by a few botanists to a distinct genus, appropriately named 
Elephantella, but the two species agree essentially in their flower 
structure with other members of the genus Pedicularis. 

This representative member of the Figwort Family is found in 
Greenland and Labrador, and from the mountains of New Mexico 
and California northward to Alaska. 

It grew in many places in the Ptarmigan Valley, fifteen miles by 
trail north from Lake Louise, Alberta, at an altitude of 6,000 feet, 
where this specimen was obtained.

Your Print Options:

Poster Print

While this is our lowest priced print, it's still an excellent paper. Inkpress Matte 60 is a acid and lignin free paper. Bright white, and 10 mil. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.

 

Rag Print

Inkpress Cool Rag 200 is a 100% cotton rag paper. This is an acid-free, 200gsm, 15 mil, with a smooth and bright matte finish. Excellent print quality at an excellent price. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting. This rag paper is better at dark, rich colors than the poster print.


Hahnemuehle Torchon Print

When you need something extra-special, we recommend Hahnemuehle's Torchon. This is a 100% alpha cellulose, 285gsm, textured watercolor paper that is acid-free. This offers superb image quality and is our favorite Hahnemuehle paper. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.

Canvas Print

Our maps are also available as cotton-poly blend canvas prints, ready to be gallery stretched. For the best presentation the edges on our canvasses are mirrored or have the paper color extended around the sides. Canvas prints receive a UV and surface protective coating. Additional canvas is left around the image to facilitate gallery stretching at your local frame shop. Available in two sizes.


Wall Tapestry Print

Especially well suited for long horizontal maps, the image is printed to the edge of the paper. Aluminum tension bars are placed on the top and bottom of the print for easy hanging with a clean, modern design. Bars are easily removable. This format comes in an 18", 24", and 36" wide version.


Fabric Wall Cling

Great for kids rooms or for versatile displays - these Terylene fabric clings are easily repositionable without causing wear or staining to the paint underneath even after long periods of time. Wall Cling images are printed to the edge and are available in three sizes.
