Dry as drummondii Richardson
FRUIT OF PLATE 364
When the flowers of yellow dryad are past, their stalks lengthen
and soon the twisted seed heads develop into balls of fluff. These are
borne on dainty stems about six inches above the close mats of gray-
green leaves. Near Glacier Lake they grew in fairy rings. The soft
pink fluffy fruits were very beautiful. The horses considered them
only from the practical standpoint, and enjoyed eating them.
This member of the Rose Family is found in the mountains from
Quebec to Montana, British Columbia and Alaska.
In the valley of the Siffleur River, fifty miles north of Lake Louise,
by trail, the plant grew in abundance, and here we obtained these
specimens at an altitude of 3,500 feet.
