This is a scenic close-up picture of a Washington State wildflower called the Foxglove. I took this photo in a field of wildflowers about a mile away from my house. Foxglove wildflowers can be many different colors such as pink, white, red, and yellow, but Washington State has an abundance of purple ones.
Foxgloves are a European invasive that has been rapidly spreading into the Washington backcountry. They are long tubelike flowers that grow in rows along the upper portion of the stalk. The name “foxglove” was derived from the shape of the flower.
