Trond - I like it too

Lori - Thank you . Sounds good to me

I should have given the thread a more general title as I have a few more I would like help with and they aren't Penstemons

The first 4 are from the Siskiyous from 3000ft up to 5000ft for the Phlox

1- Allium sp

2- Something parasitic (?)

3- Wouldn't have a clue

4- Phlox sp

5- Woodland plant on the Teanaway River ca 4000ft in WA

6- Possibly Eriogonum douglasii Burnt Mtn , west of Yakima WA

Thanks . Really appreciate your help - Steve

5 Clintonia uniflora.

Cheers Dave.

Steve - the first looks like the one we call Spring Beauty - a Claytonia?  The second, because of the leaves, I would guess a type of Draba.  The third one's flowers look like Hesperochiron calfornica.  But the leaves aren't right.  But these are only uneducated guesses.  All of them are, in my opinion, choice.  Fran

Agree with Claytonia lanceolata for the first, Draba sp. for the second.
For the third, compare to Anemone deltoidea.

Thanks Lori and Frances . All I need sometimes is a starting point for my google search . So I typed in Draba species near Strawberry Mountain and I got . When you scroll down to the close-ups, there are pictures from the northern approach to Baldy Mpountain , which is where my picture was taken . As there are not many rock outcrops there I assume they are the same colony .

I have used Claytonia lanceolata and Anemone deltoidea . Cheers :)
