Elegant Piperia (Piperia elegans)
The elegant piperia in its native habitat in Southern Washington growing on a very windy grassland overlooking the Columbia Gorge. Out of the several I found in bloom in this location, they all seemed to favor high elevation in contrast to the surrounding rocky terrain, but near a pine tree - possibly for some protection from the wind.
