Native to the Sierra Nevada from the Mt. Shasta area of California up into Oregon, it prefers damp soils on the edges of meadows. It can also be found along the edges of streams and rivers in areas that are not saturated, but never seem to dry out. Rarely exceeding 3 feet, most stems are closer to 2 to 2.5 feet. Flowers are strongly recurved with orange-yellow spotted centers and red tips. Red color intensifies with age.
