PK, that rosea form from Mongolia is striking..and I am rather fond of the marginata...coccinea is the stuff of dreams! Rhodiola have not been given the attention they deserve.
St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada

Lots of beauties! I've looked at the many Rhodiolas on the Czech seed lists, but not tried any yet..I'd love to get seed from Alberta forms, but seems impossible unless I run into them myself- though I can easily get Asians and U.S. forms sold by Alplains!
Lori, in your first set of pics of integrifolia, the second last photo- what are the leaves behind against the rock, Dryas?

Yes, probably Dryas octopetala from what I can make out on this laptop.

Thanks- that gives a sense of the scale!
