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.

Probably so. I didn't read some of the middle posts where you listed another scientific name and the more likely common name. I just went by the appearance in your photo. The trustworthy Wikipedia said Alaska so I thought "aw-hah", maybe it's a strain of Indian Paintbrush.

I understand completely.

Sounds like a burning enigma. Thank you, Malibu!
