Polemonium pauciflorum ssp. hinckleyi
Locality: USA - Arizona & Texas - Mountain View Experimental Gardens, Peak 7 area, Breckenridge, Colorado, elevation 10,000 feet, USDA Zone 4.
Photographer: Jane Hendrix
Note: Like other Polemoniums, this one is easy to grow. It stands at about 8 to 12 inches in full bloom and blooms for me in mid-July. Some plants are in light shade while others are in full sun and they do equally well in both locations, needing no care -- not even additional water. Unlike P. pulcherrimum and P. viscosum, P. pauciflorum behaves itself and stays contained in its alloted area. (Sent: Alpinefirstname.lastname@example.org)
