Rhodiola rosea subsp. integrifolia

Continuing with the “Plants of the North” series, today’s photographs are again courtesy of Chris Czajkowski of Nuk Tessli. Much appreciated!

I’m away on vacation, so a series of links instead of a written entry today:

Like the previous entry in this series on Potentilla villosa, this seems to be another taxon with confusing nomenclature:

  • USDA’s GRIN database (what I typically use for names of taxa): Rhodiola rosea subsp. integrifolia
  • Flora of North America account for Rhodiola integrifolia (goes into extensive detail about names)
  • Rhodiola rosea via the Flora of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago includes distribution and some interesting economic uses, as well as additional photographs (see links in “illustrations” section)
  • the genus Rhodiola via Wikipedia
