About this app

High Country Apps is proud to team up with the Yellowstone Forever (www.yellowstone.org) as its conservation partner for the Flora of the Yellowstone Region app. Flora of the Yellowstone Region presents more than 450 wildflowers, grasses, shrubs and trees readily found in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and the surrounding national forests of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, and beyond. Designed for expert and beginner alike, this guide presents each species in a clear, informative format that provides photos and illustrations of the plant, an easily understood description, distinctive field marks, preferred habitats, and tidbits on the plant’s ecology and cultural use.

An innovative, easy-to-use key allows the user to select flower color, leaf type, and other characteristics to quickly identify unknown plants. You are on a hike, look down and see a flower with yellow petals and opposite leaves but don’t know its name. It could be tall and thorny, sticky with black berries, sweet-smelling with square stems. Just select what you do know on the app and all plants matching your description will be shown. Photographs and information used by the app are stored locally, making the app available to use with or without a data connection.

The Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks region is a land etched by rivers and mountains, and accented by wildflowers. Its unique plants include diminutive orchids, plants that flower once every 60 years, plants that are a favorite food of grizzly bears, and others that are deadly poisonous. Taken together, their forms, colors and habits are diverse and compelling. Whether you are hiking, camping, enjoying a walk, or just driving through, Flora of the Yellowstone Region is the field guide app to take along.

In recognition of the importance of wildlands and the public-private partnership to conserve and manage the Yellowstone region, a portion of all proceeds goes to non-profit organizations in the region. See www.highcountryapps.com for more information.

This is a super app for folks who love all things flora. Has a beautiful interface for identifying flowers in the Greater Yellowstone area (and beyond, as I see much overlap with my travels in the rest of the Northern Rockies). Photos that scale; simple methods of keying flowers out; excellent search tools; easy for me, a relative beginner, to ID plants, but tons of info for the expert, as well. Needs no cell connection so perfect for when you're "out there". TWO PETALS UP--WAY UP!

This app provides easy-to-use search stepping stones and incredible pictures. Excellent app that enables the user to grasp the unique plant species endemic to the Yellowstone area.

I used this app much of the summer while doing vegetation surveys in and around the park. It was good but missing many, many grass species and some forbs. Much lighter than carrying books deep in the woods.

We've added new grass species to the Yellowstone app and will do another update in March 2015. If you're really into grasses, check out Montana Grasses, built in conjunction with Montana State University. It contains 105 of the most commonly found grasses in Montana.
