Collinsia parviflora (Blue-eyed Mary, Hunchback Flower)

Now in Order Lamiales, Family Plantaginaceae, Genus Collinsia, this plant used to be in Family Scrophulariaceae. Our smallest member of the Plantaginaceae Family, it prefers full to partial sun, and grows with other tiny plants, Microsteris gracilis and Androsace occidentalis.

As summer progresses, the whole plant turns dark red.
