Ipomopsis is a genus of flowering plants in the family Polemoniaceae. These are annual and perennial herbs native to the Americas, particularly North America.
Ipomopsis aggregata - Scarlet Gilia is a flowering plant of the Polemoniaceae family. It is native to the western North America, growing mainly in the central to western regions and ranging from as far north as British Columbia to Mexico. It has characteristic red, trumpet-shaped flowers and basal leaves stemming from a single erect stem. Other common names include Skyrocket, Scarlet Trumpet, or Sky Trumpet.
Ipomopsis congesta is a species of flowering plant in the phlox family known by the common name ballhead ipomopsis. It is native to much of western North America where it grows in many habitats from alpine peaks to low-elevation scrub. This is a perennial herb which varies in appearance, especially across subspecies and climates. It may take the form of a squat patch with stems under 10 centimeters in height or a more erect form up to 30 centimeters tall. The stems are often hairy to woolly. The thick leaves are usually fork-shaped with a number of clawlike lobes and 1 to 4 centimeters long. The flowers appear in a rounded, dense cluster atop the stem. Each flower is bell-shaped to funnel-shaped and white with a pale yellow throat and protruding yellow or white stamens. There are several subspecies, many of which were formerly considered species of Gilia.
Ipomopsis arizonica (Arizona firecracker) is a flowering plant in the family Polemoniaceae, native to the mountains of the Mojave Desert from southeastern California east through southern Nevada to northern Arizona, growing at 1500-3100 m altitude. It is found in rocky places in the desert, as well as washes. It is a monocarpic herbaceous perennial plant, dying after flowering and producing seeds. It grows from 10-30 cm tall, with pinnately lobed leaves 3-5 cm long with 7-11 lobes. The flowers are produced 5-13 on a one-sided spike, each flower tubular, 1-2 cm long, with five corolla lobes 5-10 mm long; they are bright red, and pollinated by hummingbirds.
Ipomopsis tenuifolia is a species of flowering plant in the phlox family known by the common name slenderleaf skyrocket, or slenderleaf ipomopsis. It is native to Baja California with its range extending just into California and Arizona, where it is a plant of the deserts and chaparral. This is a perennial herb taking the form of a neat clump of slender, erect multibranched stems reaching a maximum height near 40 centimeters. The leaves are narrow to threadlike and occur all along the stem branches. The inflorescences appear at or near the tips of the branches and each holds one to seven bright scarlet flowers. Each flower is a tube 1 to 2 centimeters long opening into a flat or bell-shaped corolla with squared or toothed lobes. The five stamens and one style protrude far out of the mouth of the flower. The stamens have white to purple anthers and the style has three whitish stigmas.
Ipomopsis polycladon is a species of flowering plant in the phlox family known by the common name manybranched ipomopsis. It is native to much of the western United States and northern Mexico, where it grows in sandy soils such as those of the deserts. This is an annual herb producing a number of horizontal red stems branching outward from the short central stem. Leaves appear at the ends and axils of branches. Each leaf is multilobed, and mostly green but often red-tipped, and less than 2 centimeters long. Stems and leaves are covered with woolly glandular hairs. The long stem branches bear inflorescences of leaflike bracts which are green with sharp-pointed red tips, and tiny white flowers a few millimeters across.
Ipomopsis tenuituba is a species of flowering plant in the phlox family known by the common name slendertube skyrocket, or slendertube ipomopsis. It is native to much of the western United States from California to Colorado, where it is found on rocky mountain slopes. This is a perennial herb producing an erect stem with widely spaced leaves, each 3 to 6 centimeters long and with many narrow, fingerlike lobes. The inflorescences toward the top of the stem each hold three to seven flowers. The flower is very pale to medium pink, sometimes with white streaks, or solid white. It is a tube 2 to 5 centimeters long, opening into a corolla of five twisting, pointed, ribbonlike lobes. The stamens and style do not protrude far from the mouth of the flower, if at all. While it is a perennial plant, it dies after its first flowering.
