Anemone drummondii var. lithophila Anemone drummondii var. lithophila

Nice little Anemone for the rock garden with white flowers on 4"-10" stems. This grows in the Rockies from Idaho, Montana and Wyoming up though Canada into Alaska where it favors open rocky ridges from 6500' to 10,000' so hardiness is not in question. We grew these from seed given us as var. lithophila, we suspected var. drummondii, but it keys to var. lithophila.
