Inflated Oxytrope
A common alpine in the eastern slope Rockies; the blue-purple flowers, followed by showy red inflated seedpods provide much colour on exposed ridges.
From Moss & Packer (Flora of Alberta, 1983 rev.): Habitat is "[e]xposed rocky ridges and turfy alpine hillsides"; range is northern BC south to Montana, Wyoming, Colorado; south Baffin Island south to northern Quebec and northern Labrador.
