I would like to find a source of knowledge about Draba to make sure mine are identified properly.
Is this a valid name? It's what it says on the lable but I can find no source for this or D. sphaeralea or D. sphaeralcea which appear in nursery lists or in show reports.
I've reached the conclusion the true name is probably D. Sphaeroides.
Anyone know anything?
Martin, it looks like there's been a typo somewhere. The only drabas with sphaer… in their specific name are:
Draba sphaerula (looks possible for your sphaeralea) – this is a synonym of D densifolia
D sphaeroides var cusickii, now elevated to species rank as D cusickii
