Snowed all day Sunday, high winds for two days straight, but woodlanders don't care.
Moderator note: I have merged the separate message about D. pulchellum into the "Dodecatheon 2010" topic. Mark McD :D

This selection is new to me - seems to be a fine plant.
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
Ah - the picture reminds me - I had this plant once but when I think about it, I haven't seen it for some time. Must have disappeared.
Curious about the cultivar name, I googled. Found many links pointing towards Jelitto Seeds. Here's what is said about this culitvar from Ellen Hornig's Seneca Hill Nursery:
"Zone 4 ~ Height: to 30cm/1ft ~ Sun, moist soil For years we have sold this as Dodecatheon jeffrey 'Rotlicht', that being what our original source, Jelitto Seeds, calls it. However, now that we've grown wild-collected D. jeffreyi we do not see how this can be the same species. Wildflower expert Bill Cullina thinks it's a form of D. hendersonii. Whatever it is, it's easy to grow, persistent, and free-blooming. Flower colors range from deep pink to the occasional incandescent deep magenta - none of those washed-out lilac pinks in this selection!"
Also found this link with a photo, with the cultivar name translated to Dodecatheon jeffreyi 'Red Light':http://www.scp.perennials.com/seeplant.html?item=1.193.110

Great colour on that selection....only jeffreyi I've grown have been white. Our Dodecatheon are not even showing buds yet!
