Lyall's saxifrage, red-stemmed saxifrage

Publication: N. Amer. Fl. 22: 143. 1905.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA8: "Although they have nearly disjunct sets of populations, the subspecies of Micranthes lyallii are difficult to distinguish from each other. The more northern plants tend to be larger with wider leaves and often have been called Saxifragalyallii subsp. or var. hultenii. Apparent hybrids with M. odontoloma occur in Alberta, British Columbia, and northern Idaho, and near Glacier National Park, Montana."
