Prickly Rose Sprinkled With Raindrops Eklutna Flats Alaska

A delicate wild Prickly Rose sprinkled with raindrops from the last weather system which passed over the Eklutna Flats in Alaska, USA.

Every year during the month of May, some of the wildflowers found on the Eklutna Flats in Alaska, USA begin to bud and show the early signs of new life. On this plant known as the Prickly Rose, dark pink buds appear and as June arrives, the flowers open up showing off its five petals in a pale pink hue.

Rain has watered the landscape of the Eklutna Flats and sprinkled the Prickly Rose with raindrops that cling to the petals and leaves. A rose native in Alaska, USA, this wildflower blossoms from a bushy shrub with stout stems and petals that span about 3.5-5 centimeters across. They thrive in the open forests, thickets, swamps and along riverbanks where they are tolerant of moderate shade.

The Prickly Rose is the official flower of Alberta, Canada and can be found across various landscapes from Alaska to Newfoundland. The Eklutna Flats are beautiful when the Prickly Rose bushes blossom and appear very delicate when raindrops are left to sit on their petals.
