Semelparous (reproducing in a single episode) rosette-forming herbs include monument plant (Frasera speciosa) and scarlet gilia (Ipomopsis aggregata); iteroparous (repeatedly reproducing) herbs range from ephemeral bulbiferous species (e.g., Claytonia lanceolata, Delphinium nuttallianum) that flower and disappear from above ground soon after snowmelt, to vegetatively persistent species (e.g., Potentilia pulcherrima, Erigeron speciosus, Helianthella quinquenervis) whose aboveground tissues remain active throughout the summer.
