Several close-up views of the flowers and inflorescence of sticky cinquefoil (variety glandulosa) as seen above 4100' on Road S1750 on the east side of King Mt, which is on the southeastern flanks of Mt. Adams.........July 9, 2006. Note how much shorter the creamy yellow petals are than the sepals for this variety. This variety has creamy or yellow petals that are rounded, ovate or obovate. Similar var. reflexa has yellow petals that are narrower than those of var. glandulosa and also petals that are shorter than the sepals
