Blue-Orange/Pink/Red - Purple/Violet - White - Yellow
It's hard to hike in the Grand Junction area without noticing a large variety of wildflowers, shrubs and trees. If you are like me you often wonder what you are looking at and would like to know the name of each of the plants. This page is a layman's effort at making those identifications. Due to the large number of species and variations the naming can be difficult to almost impossible. On top of that, many plants have more than one common name and the one I choose may not be everyones favorite. Sometimes it is easier to search a book or the internet if you know the scientific name so I have included it in parenthesis below the common name. I have many photos to add to this page as quick as I find the time and as quick as I can make the identifications. I am using the USDA Plants Database to confirm names and identifications whenever possible. I have sorted the flowers by color to make them a little easier find. Assigning a color isn't always any easier than getting the name right. Feel free to share your comments or email me directly at email@example.com.
