Wildflowers (White)

Sacred Datura (Datura wrightii) - Zion National Park

White flowers are often pollinated by bees, but they're also visited by a host of other species. Instead of attracting pollinators with color, these plants attract them by scent. These species are often visited by flies, beetles, and other small insects. Some of the larger more showy ones only open up at night, and these are pollinated by bats and moths. This album features 101 different species.

Wildflowers (Yellow)

Desert Marigold (Baileya multiradiata) - Zion National Park

There are many families in Zion with yellow flowering species, but the sunflower family is king. This family is represented in Zion by more than 160 different species. Many of these bloom during the heat of summer, but you can find them in the spring and in the fall. These flowers are often visited by bees, butterflies, and other flying insects. Many yellow flowers also have ultraviolet guidelines that direct insects to their nectar. This album features 94 different species.
