Western mountain ash

with 6 comments

At various places in Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park we noticed plants with conspicuous clusters of orange fruits, like this one in Glacier National Park on August 30th. Teagan Tomlin of the National Park Service identified it for me as western mountain ash, Sorbus scopulina. Notice how the orange discolorations on some of the leaflets match the color of the fruit.
