Western Wallflower is the most common of the native wallflowers, and can be found in conditions ranging from the desert to the mountain meadow. Though this American species does not generally live up to its name, its European relatives acquired the common name of wallflower because of their affinity for growing in the cracks of walls or cliffs. Western Wallflower was first discovered near the Columbia River around 1829 by English botanist David Douglas, who made several trips of exploration to the United States. Douglas also introduced such species as the Ponderosa Pine, Sitka Spruce, and Noble Fir; the common name of Douglas Fir honors his legacy.
