Erigeron unalaschensis (De Candolle) Rydberg
The alpine valleys of the Canadian Rocky Mountains are wonder-
ful places in which to find wild flowers that flourish in high altitudes.
Among these the Aleutian fleabane, a member of the great Aster
Family, deserves a prominent place. It delights in the moist earth near
snow-water streams, being able to withstand the violent, almost daily
changes from warm sunshine to freezing temperatures. The dainty
plant often has a woolly covering to protect it.
This fleabane is found from Montana to Alaska as well as in Labra-
dor and Greenland.
The specimens sketched were gathered in the Little Yoho Valley,
fifteen miles from Field, British Columbia, at an altitude of 7,5 00 feet.
