Hello, all.....
Here is a photo of I alexeenkoi, which grows in the steppes of eastern Russia.  It is a tetraploid, having a chromosome count of 32, and blooms here at 8 inches tall.  Brian Mathew claims that its larger leaves and larger flowers are the only characteristics that distinguish it from I. pumila.  Mathew also states that when he grew it, it succumbed to a virus.  Köhlein says it "grows poorly in cooler climates."  I find it to be healthy, and it survives to 0 degrees F. here.
