I don't know what this is. It was taken in August 1996, just outside of NOME, ALASKA. The elevation is approximately 1,500 feet above sea level. It was growing in a wet area on a "north-facing" slope, OUT on the TUNDRA and not too far from a river.
Native Alaskans use these flowers to make an herbal medicine.
