Leedy's Roseroot

Rhodiola integrifolia subsp. leedyi

Leedy’s roseroot is a state endangered and federally threatened plant. This plant used to have a larger geographic distribution but is now restricted to only Minnesota and New York. This plant has proven difficult to bank due to its limited, disjunct populations and restriction to sheer cliff-face habitats. Fortunately, the Conservation Program has been able to bank seed from both Minnesota and New York.
