Author Whitney Tilt presents a guide to the plants of Yellowstone National Park. A portion of proceeds go to support Yellowstone Forever (www.yellowstone.org).
High Country Apps is proud to team up with the Yellowstone Forever (www.yellowstone.org) as its conservation partner for its Flora of Yellowstone app.
Flora of the Yellowstone Region presents more than 450 wildflowers, grasses, shrubs and trees readily found in Yellowstone National Park 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 Greater Yellowstone 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.
We hope this app increases your enthusiasm for the plants that give us all life and inspiration. Revel in the wildflowers and infect others with your love of the land.

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
This was the first High Country app that I purchased and it’s still my favorite. I haven’t opened and browsed the app for some time and decided to do so because of the recent update. Love, love, love that it includes grasses and trees too!I try to travel to Yellowstone NP every year and it’s really nice to have useful information in my daypack that doesn’t weigh a ton!
FLORA OF THE YELLOWSTONE REGION
Easy to use. Highly recommend this app.
A Promising App
I just saw this app demonstrated by the author of the book this app is based on at a seminar at Cashman's Nursery. I was very impressed and downloaded it as soon as I got home. I am looking forward to using it while hiking this summer.
