Well, I thought that's what I grew in 2004. Turns out it was Cortusa matthiolii instead. More recent attempts have been only partly successful - one year I had seedlings, but they didn't survive the season; last year I once again raised seedlings, and had tiny plants to show for it this spring. The plantlets bloomed in early May, but don't look much like the glorious specimens featured on online sources, so either they take a while to develop their form and stature, or I've once again grown something different...

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
