Looks like you are doing well with these in your "hot" climate. I agree that looks like Sabine 'alba'.

That is a properly grown C. yatabeanum as well... but no web presence? A little search came up with a couple links (no website), a phone number, address and hours: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=Benedict's+Nursery+Nappanee Looks like a really cool place to visit, and not where you would imagine finding a nursery specializing in alpines.

I agree Sabine album. In mine the flowers are also somewhat different in shape from typical Sabine

Best,

Nice. I especially like Chauncey. Looks like a pure parviflorum but I bet it is more forgiving about growing conditions.
I like Chauncey but I find it less forgiving than parviflorum, same for Emil. I have a would-be display of parvi's, pubescens, makasin's, and some of the really nice yellow hybrids like these two - the species clump fast and expand while the hybrids very slowly expand.

Cyp season begins. Cyp. formosanum & L. vernus 'Katrink Hull'. (Looks like last week’s frost caused a few blasted buds.)
Those leaves look wild, like you trimmed them. What are those other flowers, remind me of Virginia blue bells, especially this time of year.
