    Signs of Spring: The Smoothstem Blazingstar 

    The smoothstem blazingstar, or mentzelia laevicaulis, was named for German botanist and physician, Christian Mentzel (1622-1701). Dakota and Cheyenne people are said to have this flower medicinally to treat fevers, earache, arthritis, mumps, measles and smallpox.
