Phacelia sericea (Silky Phacelia or Blue alpine). Endemic to Western North America, this perennial grows among the subalpine to alpine elevations in open, rocky or sandy slopes. As a hyperaccumulator, it is able to grow in soils with high concentrations of heavy metals, which its roots absorb and store in extremely high concentrations in the tissues. Specifically, Silky Phacelia hyperaccumulates gold. (Photo by Emily Smith) Phacelia sericea (Silky Phacelia or Blue alpine). (Photo by Emily Smith/Submitted to Revelstoke Review)

Last week Revelstoke celebrated the beautiful colours popping up in the area with a Wildflower Festival.

We asked our readers to submit their best photos to us and with the help of the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society weeded out the photos that featured invasive species.

We also attempted to identify the flowers, some we couldn’t. If you know what they are let us know in the comments below!

Thank you to our readers for sending in photos.
