I will post a photo of it on the wiki when more flowers open in a week or 
so. The origin is collector's number JJH948746 and the geographical site is 
listed as CIMG 3200 m[eters], rocky slopes. I believe this is his code for 
Chimgan , and I think that's a variant of Chimkent, a province of 
Kazakhstan. I ordered the seed from his 1994 catalog.
