Interested in College in Alaska?

Alpine Bistort
Polygonum viviparum

Despite the common name, this plant was most definitely not growing in the alpine, though I have seen it there as well.

Location: Taigud Islands, near Sitka, Alaska

Previous: Beach Strawberry Flower (Fragaria chiloensis)
Next: Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae)
