Ipomopsis congesta viridis

(Ipomopsis congesta viridis)


Ipomopsis congesta-is a species of flowering plant in the-phlox family, known by the common name-ballhead ipomopsis. It is native to much of western North America, where it grows in many habitats from-alpine peaks-to low-elevation scrub. It is a perennial herb which varies in appearance, especially across subspecies and climates. It may take the form of a squat patch with stems under 10 centimeters in height or a more erect form up to 30 centimeters tall. The stems are often hairy to woolly. The thick leaves are usually fork-shaped with a number of clawlike lobes and 1 to 4 centimeters long. The flowers appear in a rounded, dense cluster atop the stem. Each flower is bell-shaped to funnel-shaped and white with a pale yellow throat and protruding yellow or white-stamens. There are several subspecies, many of which were formerly considered species of-Gilia.
