Did you have any success finding seed,  John ?
I'm interested in it too, but I think the availability of such rare seed is very restricted.

Looks pretty cute! So the 'rosea' flowers are the new ones and they then turn yellow?

I don't know of a seed source, but here's some handsome photographs:

Cohan, according to the last link, the flowers open yellow then age to orange-red.

Sure would like to give this one a whirl.

Our own NARGS Forum member Fringe from Seattle, Washington, might be a good resource in the future.  The Fringe Nursery listing has 2 Balsamorhiza species listed, unfortunately not B. rosea (which is found in Washington to Oregon).
