Yellow or Orange Flowers
Figwort Family (Scrophulariaceae)
Habitat: Montane on both sides of Continental Divide
Height: Up to 60 cm
Description: This low elevation, yellow paintbrush is identical to its more common red relative. It is a tall, yellow plant, up to 60 cm in height. The petals are nondescript and green, but a series of yellow bracts give the flower its yellow colour. The roots are parasitic, robbing nutrients from some of its neighbours. The leaves are linear, green and alternate.
