NPS, G. Wagner

Countless numbers of wildflowers color Pipestone National Monument's landscape. The pink of the Prairie Rose, the purple of the Blazing Star, and the silvery appearance of Lead Plant make the Monument a breathtaking sight to behold. Wildflowers are an important food source for the fauna of the area, and are used by American Indians for religious and medicinal purposes.

When is the best time to view wildflowers? The changing seasons bring out a continuously-changing scene of wildflowers. Flowers may be viewed in spring, summer, and fall.
