Larkspur
Delphinium glaucum

The Larkspur was common on the Kenai Peninsula and at Denali NP. The buds look similiar to small dolphins, therefore the genus name, Delphinium. One of the park rangers told us not to eat any of the purple flowers (like I'd eat flowers in a national park anyway
!) because the purple-flowered Larkspur and Monkshood are both deadly poisonous.
