    I grew this alpine plant from seed collected near Kootenay Pass. I think that it is a Suksdorfia ranunculifolia but I am not certain. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. JK

    Hi Joe and welcome to the forums,

    I can see why you'd be uncertain about this one. The leaves match the description of Suksdorfia ranunculifolia, but the overlapping flower petals and petal shape seem to be a bit different than what one would expect from the species. I'll have to do more research on this one.
