Description

I took a whole bunch of pictures of the abundantly blooming dryas, it's this time of year, where their blossom cover the mountains. My first question is which whiteflowering Dryas with crenate kind of leaves, can grow here. Is it D. ajanensis, D.incisa ,D alaskensis and maybe D.hookeriana?
