Great bloomin’ shootin’ stars!

A high-altitude meadow near the base of Jordan Peak was full of purple shooting stars Sunday afternoon. Snow fields remain higher up in the Jordan Creek and Yankee Fork of the Salmon River drainages, providing moisture for springs to flow and wildflowers to bloom. The scientific name for shooting stars is Dodecatheon pulchellum. They are in the primrose family, also known as Primulaceae, and love moisture. They range widely across North America and are found from coastal prairies to mountain meadows and streamsides, according to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at the University of Austin, Texas.
