Giant Blue-Eyed Mary
This beautiful small, and beautiful blue member of the figwort family is found in conifer forests from mid-to-low elevations in California, Utah, Oregon, Idaho, Washington and British Columbia. While its species name (Collinsia grandiflora) means "large-flowered", the tiny flowers of the giant blue-eyed Mary are still much larger than other members of the Collinsia genus. This one was found growing in thick mats scattered over the serpentine outcropping on the northwestern corner of Washington's Fidalgo Island.
