Queen’s Crown Still Blooming in September

Was delighted to find Queen’s Crown (Sedum rhodanthum), also called Roseroot, still in full bloom August 27, 2016 when hiking along a small stream to the ridge above Linkins Lake on Independence Pass. The leaves of this beautiful plant are sometimes used raw or cooked as a potherb – best when young. Pollinators were moving a bit slow in the cool fall temperatures and were easy to keep in the photo. Here’s a map showing the approximate location. Great hike!rose_crown_linkins_p1040489
