Claytonia ogilviensis

provided by wikipedia EN

Claytonia ogilviensis, common name Ogilvie Mountains spring beauty, is a plant endemic to the Ogilvie Mountains north of Dawson City in the Yukon Territory of Canada. These mountains extend into Alaska, and one of the known populations is less than 1 km from the border, so it would not be surprising if the plant were to be found in Alaska as well.[1][2]

Claytonia ogilviensis is a perennial herb with round or turnip-shaped tubers up to 25 mm in diameter, spreading by means of underground rhizomes. Stems are up to 8 cm tall. Leaves are generally round, up to 2.5 cm in diameter. Flowers are borne in umbels with leaf-like bracts. Flowers are bright purple, up to 20 mm in diameter. [1][3][4][5]
