This deep blue wildflower was near the Hutch’s Pool trail at about 3,900 ft. in the Pusch Ridge Wilderness above the Sabino Basin. I needed help in identifying this beautiful deep blue wildflower, which I received from fellow SCVN members. This one is a much deeper blue than the one pictured in Frank Rose’s “Mountain Wildflowers of Southern Arizona.” The conditions have been very dry in the Catalina Mountains this Spring, producing fewer than normal wildflowers. This larkspur was all alone.
