bulbs of the north

Zigadenus elegans is now Anticlea elegans.  Grows rampantly around here and
is one of my faves.  Tofieldia glutinosa is a very pretty little thing and
grows in moist ditches all around Rocky Mountain House, AB and west into the
mountains.  If anyone is interested in either I can send in seed to the SX.


Fritillaria camschatcensis grows pretty far north.  Maybe some of our
northern alliums would do well.   I wonder if Lilium philadelphicum would
apply?  Another really tough bulb that grows in moist ditches well into my
section of mountains.

And, Streptopus amplexifolius (a native in Greenland) as well as Stenanthium
occidentale.

I would guess that Zigadenus (which I think might be Toxicoscordion or
something new now) would be one of the most northerly of bulbs, but I would
also think that some of the  very tiny species of Tofieldia would be the
most northerly reaching bulbs in the world. That's just a guess though. How
far north does Veratrum grow? (It grows from a rhizome and not a bulb, but
does that count?) _______________________________________________
