Photo of Beargrass in Glacier National Park
< Prev2 of 36Next >

Probably the flower most associated with Glacier National Park, Beargrass can be seen throughout the Park covering a wide range of elevations.  The 4-5 foot stalk which rises from a clump of grass-like basal leaves is topped by a head of tiny creamy-white flowers.  While mostly associated with open alpine mountain slopes, where they certainly present a most striking appearance, they are also found in forested areas.  Its sturdy leaves were used by the native people to weave baskets and clothing.  In this photo blooming beargrass are seen against a backdrop of Mount Reynolds which is located on Logan Pass in Glacier National Park.
