Re: FSU Spring Extravaganza

Thanks Jim for the run down.  If you don't mind, could you list some of the 
ones that you say won't Google??  Be interested in them.  After all the talk 
recently about peonies, etc. I'm sure nobody will mind if you throw in a bit of 
zone 9+ plants.  If so, perhaps you can email me.

Is that the desert rose that you've had your eye on for a while now???  

I've been a cacti/succulent fan since childhood, but for the life of me have 
troubles with lithops and the like.  I tried again last year at the cacti 
show, it's been alive since....so hopefully this one will make it.  

Any interesting fat plants?  By the way, since this subject was recently 
brought up....there is a great email list group for fat plants on yahoo.  It even 
got so large that it has since split into a fat plant bonsai group too.  Both 
are very informative, for anyone interested.

We got a few interesting plants, Noreen. Among them, a very dark, dark 
red desert rose, an import from Thailand.

The short one found some prostrate rosemary [a gift for a friend; we 
have a bed of it growing around the base of a ponytail palm].

We got a large pot of living stones [Lithrops] but I don't know which 
species. The short one took it to school before I could read the label 
or photograph it. The pot is about 6 inches in diameter and 
chock-a-block with dime size plants in a wide range of colors, 
patterns, and textures--and probably species.

We got a few other plants, small ones, but their labels don't seem to 
agree with Google, so I'll have to do a bit more searching before 
deciding what I think they are.
