The Dubious location you refer to is in the vicinity of
Fort Nelson B.C. Well beyond the Great Plains region. A member of
PNWCPC & ICPS named Randy Lamb did research in the area on the
seed pod parasites of this plant under permit form the Canadian
government. The area is quite remote and protected by law as part
of a (Provincial?) park. He tells me he also knows another sight
besides that. Surplus seed was made available to PNWCPC members
when the project was concluded and I have been growing plants
form that seed for a few years now. You are welcome to one or
two in the spring if you wish for your studies. I hear that there
is nothing special about them though so don't expect much. I'm
willing to send you his address privately if you wish. I would
also be willing to forward your letter to him from here if you
prefer. Just E-mail it to me. It should have the advantage of
being faster and less expensive for you. Right now he is living
in Whitehorse in the Yukon where he works as an ecologist.
