Rick, many/most of the Pedicularis contorta plants had red leaves. The nonblooming plants in that photo were also P. contorta.
P. bracteosa is mainly lower down, in the subalpine meadows, and is a bigger plant, often also with reddish-purplish foliage.

Where has this thread been before? I haven't noticed it till now?!
Very interesting Lori! An amazing and floriferous place!!
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
Yes, it certainly is!
Trond, I find that by clicking on "Active topics", I can see the threads with new postings. Hope that helps!
Yes, thanks Lori.
I have also discovered that all new posts are listed on the bottom of the page when I log in. I have to scroll down the page!
I only just found this great thread too.
This new forum is quite infuriating, it is so far from being user-friendly......... sigh! weep!

If only this forum could implement a "Mark Unread" button as there is on SRGC forum and previous NARGS forum. That simple button, would save messages "as new" until one has time to respond. As it is now, I check new messages, intent on going back to them later when I have time, but then forget about them as they no longer show up as new. I believe it must be programmatically possible to add in this missing feature.

It may well be possible to do all sorts of things to this new format Mark - but my own feeling is that the previous forum setup was a very good one and that these "innovations" are pretty ghastly. Certainly it appears that the forum traffic is much reduced- not sure if that is true or not but it is my impression. I think the situation from my point of view as a user of the forum is : it wasn't "broke" why did they try to "fix" it ?
Thanks are due to those courageously continuing to make posts in the circumstances, I reckon - Yay! for Lori! !
I agree with Maggi, it is not user friendly. Like Homer Simpson I just use the ANY key to check for updates.

Sorry Lori to distract from this fine topic, if only we could split topics into separate ones; maybe we should take Daniel up on his offer to install a plugin that provides that feature.
