We have been getting periodic reports from Minnesota wildflower chasers Phyllis Root and Kelly Povo, telling us where to hunt for wildflowers this spring and summer. Their latest dispatch is from Helen Allison Savanna Scientific and Natural Area in East Bethel, Minnesota.

There, they went in search of a beautiful yellow flower called the rhombic evening primrose.

Root and Povo are the authors of “Searching for Minnesota’s Native Wildflowers.”
