The photo on this page

Rhodiola (Rhodiola)

was originally contributed by Bonehead to the Rhodiola rosea entry, where the identity was questioned. I've moved it to the general Rhodiola entry, but I'm hoping for a more specific ID. Is it even a Rhodiola?

Looking at it more closely, it may very well be a Rhodiola but it's not Rhodiola rosea. There are several narrow-leaved species and this may be one of them.

With Bonehead's assistance, I've learned that there apparently are three different strains of Rhodiola rosea and this is one of them. I'm therefore closing this thread. Mission accomplished!
