Sullivant's coolwort, Sullivantia sullivantii

There are little weedy species that will grow almost anywhere. Always around to give us a treat if we get down there, close enough to share. Then there are fussy plants like Sullivant's coolwort. Sullivant's only grows on calcareous cliffs. A Minnesota item says it only grows on north facing cliffs. Cool! And those spots it grows on tend to be cool too. Sullivant's grows in IA, IL(T), IN(T), KY, MN(T), MO, OH, TN(E), VA, WI, and WV. Adams Co OH, 7/8/20. Saxifrage family, Saxifragaceae.
