Flowers in the Aspen Groves
The forest floor beneath aspen communities are generally richer than the understories of coniferous forests. The abundant sunlight and moist conditions of aspen stands leads to understories teeming with grasses, forbs, and shrubs. A variety of colorful wildflowers are often found in the aspen groves of the West.
