Bitterroot, Lewisia rediviva, is one of our most spectacular wildflowers. Blooming in rocky and dry areas its leafless flower stems with their huge blossoms in shades of pink and white seem to appear like magic from the ground. The name "rediviva" meaning "restored to life" refers to this. These were photographed along the Ray Westburg trail on Manastash Ridge in eastern Washington.
