This bright wildflower can be found in the western United States, springing up in dry and rocky locations because of its excellent drought tolerance. Its common name of “wooly sunflower” refers to the white, hairy surface of the leaves, which conserves moisture and reflects the heat of the sun. The genus name Eriophyllum comes from Greek words meaning “wooly leaf,” while the Latin species name “lanatum” means “covered with long wooly hair.” Lewis and Clark first described this flower at Camp Chopunnish, documenting their find on the 6th of June, 1806, near Idaho’s Clearwater River.
