Green-Flowered Macromeria (Macromeria viridiflora)

Natural History

Green-Flowered Macromeria are members of the Forget-Me-not (or Borage) Family. It grows to 3 feet in height and has green, triangular leaves with prominent veins which grow to 5 inches in length. It grows along roadsides, on rocky slopes and in valleys in coniferous forests at elevations between 6000 - 9000 feet.

Green-Flowered Macromeria flowers and leaves were dried by Hopi Indians and mixed with wild tobacco for use in rainmaking ceremonies.

Green-Flowered Macromeria blooms between July - September and produces yellowish to greenish-white, trumpet-shaped, drooping flowers which grow to 2.5 inches in length at the ends of branches.
