Growing among the sagebrush environment is the early blooming Arrowhead Balsam. This one is growing in Eastern Washington state.

Balzamorhiza sagittata - June 4, 1983 APS meeting Leavenworth

One of the early blooming shrubs. Is the Golden Current. The birds like the berries so you seldom see the blue berries. This brush was growing in central Nevada.
