As a comment about Rhodiola integrifolia subsp. leedyi, valleylynn wrote:

Leedy's roseroot is a cliffside wildflower, found today in only six locations in two widely separated states. Four populations of several thousand plants each are found in Fillmore and Olmsted Counties, Minnesota. The other two are in upstate New York, a large population on the shores of Seneca Lake and a single plant at Watkins Glen. Leedy's roseroot has a more elongate, leafy stem. The closely-packed leaves arise directly from the main stem and are smooth, with irregularly toothed to toothless edges. Although they are succulent, they can appear quite limp in dry weather. Male and female flowers are borne on separate plants. The small 4- to 5-petaled flowers are arranged in dense heads at the end of the leafy stem. They vary in color from dark red to occasional yellow or oranges. from US Fish & Wildlife Service

The comment that's currently under Sedum integrifolium ssp. integrifolium regarding Leedy's Roseroot needs to go under Rhodiola integrifolia ssp. leedyi.

The entry for Sedum integrifolium ssp. integrifolium can then be consolidated under Rhodiola integrifolia ssp. integrifolia... it's just a synonym.
