Yellowstone National Park is located in the United States. The majority of the park is located in Wyoming, but there are smaller areas of the park in Idaho and Montana.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition in the 19th...
Sand-verbena is a genus of about 35-40 species of annual or perennial herbaceous plants in the family Nyctaginaceae. They are native to western North America, from Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming south to west Texas, California and northern Mexico, and grow on dry sandy soils. They make very attractive garden plants for hot, dry sandy sites. Despite the name, they are not related to the vervains (Verbena, family Verbenaceae).
