These alpine flowers can often be found on rocky slopes of Alaska.

In harsh alpine conditions, Mountain Harebells are quite small and often produce a single flower. The overall height, including the stem is only 1 to 3 inches. Laying low on the ground and with tiny leaves, Mountain Harebells are well adapted to dry and windy climate.

At lower elevations, they can afford to be a little taller and can produce several flowers per plant.


The flowers blossom in June, blue with a hint of purple, with 5 lobes.









These unknown purple flowers (right) look like Harebells but only have 4 lobes. They live in the same alpine conditions as the Mountain Harebells.
