Pasque Flower

Pasque flowers bloom in early spring shortly after the snow melts in the high country of Rocky Mountain National Park. One of the earliest flowers to bloom, Pasqueflowers begin blooming as early as March in lower montane areas and can be seen through July at treeline. The large flowers have lavender tepals (petals and sepals that look alike) and bloom before the leaves develop. After the tepals drop, the flowers appear as feathery plumed heads due to the elongated styles.
