I have this plant in my woodland garden. I don´t remember who gave me this plant and have no idea what it is. Can you please help me? I'm all ears! Confused

Maybe a type of Euphorbia?

This is Iceland, I don´t know if Euphorbia would survive here.
Someone whispered in my ear: Rhodiola rhodantha. Do you think that could be it?

The leaves don't look long enough for Rhodiola rhodantha. Could you get close shots of the flowers and leaves? It's gorgeous whatever it is!

Do the flowers open out to flat heads? Look at Rhodiola linearifolia and check to see if the leaves and flowers match ..

Thank you all very much. It looks a lot like Rhodiola semenovii.
http://www.sarkanperennataimisto.fi/kuvat/Rhodiola_semenovii... The flowers on my plant are not quite open yet. I will get a new picture probably next weekend and post it when I am back in Reykjavík. Green Grin!

When you do determine what it is, it would be nice if you could add a photo and some details to the database. Smiling It's a lovely and interesting plant!

Sharon, I have had this one or a few years, just sitting on a heap of soil with other perennials i have brought there and some of them I have no idea what are. But this one somehow looks special Green Grin!

I will remember to post a new picture soon.

It's an amazing plant, one I think I might have to seek out!

The first thing I found when checking it out is that it may be a medicinal plant as well; sadly, I think our summers would be too hot for it.

Neat plant, Magga! Hurray!

Rhodiola rosea, a relative of the above plant, grows wild here, and people also have it in gardens. In some arctic countries it is grown for medicinal uses and sold in pill form, called Arctic Root. Green Grin!

What a marvellous plant it is too! Rhodiola semenovii looks a perfect match, would you like to add the photos to the database?
