ID help please?
I bought this plant labelled as "roseroot", and have always assumed that it was Sedum rosea (or now Tolmachevia integrifolia, or sometimes, Rhodiola integrifolia...or whatever - I think these names are synonymous)...but is it?
The flower color is the main point that confuses me. Most of the books I have say it should have purple flowers; one source says "dark purple, rarely yellow"; another says "those of male plant usually yellow but always purple in female plant". (NB. These are books on native plants, since Tolmachevia integrifolia is native to the mountains here.)
Can anyone help with a positive ID, or tell me what I need to note to make one? Here's a picture of it (in a rather overgrown trough) from May 21/04:
Thanks in advance,
