This bright little flower can only be found growing wild in the mountains and valleys west of the Cascade Mountains, as well as along the mighty Columbia River. It tends to spring up in dry prairies, rocky areas, or at the borders of woodland areas. The genus name, Collinsia, honors Philadelphia botanist Zaccheus Collins (1764-1831). One fan of this flower, American author and amateur botanist Gene Stratton Porter, wrote an entire poem dedicated to the beauties of the “sweet, laughing, blue-eyed-mary” that “lifts the loveliest face I’ve seen.”
