Anyway, I saw the entry for Streptopus.  That is a very hardy plant and 
grows everywhere here.  Here being the Rocky Mountain House area in

rampant in fact.  It is definitely hardy to Zone 2.  I found a beautiful 
specimen last week on a seed hunting trip to Shunda View Point, approx. 
80 km west of Rocky.  I collected the berries and I'm going to attempt 
again to figure out germination.
