A note especially for JANA:

Who is always making fun of the names of prairies plants...

Puccoon refers to any of several plants formerly used by some North American Indians for dyes derived from the roots, the term being an Algonquian name for dye. Lithospermum species include the yellow puccoon, or Indian paint (L. canescens), with small yellow or orange flowers and reddish roots.

Such a bright yellow! And so delicate looking :-) Very nice.

Thanks, they were one of the showiest flowers on Sunday's guided Arboretum walk.

Heather, first of all "hehehehehehe" and second of all, those look like very happy little puccoons. :)
