Notes: Sisyrinchium montanum barely reaches the Arctic as native on the southwestern shore of Hudson Bay.
Pedersen (1972) reported S. montanum to have been introduced in 1961 with American Trifolium hybridum seed in an abandoned field at Ivigtut in southwestern Greenland. The name S. montanum was applied collectively at that time. The identity of this plant has not been confirmed, thus it is tentatively included with S. montanum.
