RE: AA Catalogue/Stevie Ray

Well, when I tell Marty that such a plant exists, he is going to think
it a must have, too. I still remember his deep sorrow the day Stevie Ray
died...he had a chance to go to his concert and because of my work
schedule, he couldn't go...when I came home the next morning and he told
me Stevie Ray had died I just felt so awful for him...I'm sure he'd love
to have this in our garden. Thanks for the info. And Kitty...tatoos and
Stevie Ray? Go figure! You meet the most interesting people on this

Subject: RE: [CHAT] AA Catalogue

HA! Kitty, I never would have guessed you are a Stevie Ray Vaughn fan.
How <br>funny. My cockatiel's name is &quot;Stevie Ray Bird&quot; named
after the deceased <br>artist. I have every single one of his CD's and
jam to them all the time. <br>Love the blues. But..as they say...you
can't fully appreciate the <br>blues..unless &quot;you done had the
blues your own self&quot;.<br><br>I'll have to look into this catalog
you are talking about. Never heard of <br>it. Sounds good.<br><br>Jesse

Catalogue<br>&gt;Date: Fri, 20 Feb 2004 09:58:05
-0500<br>&gt;<br>&gt;Marge,<br>&gt;I have ordered from Arrowhead several
times. Perennials as well as <br>&gt;woodies.<br>&gt;Their plants are
not small, IMO. Here's what he says in the catalog:<br>&gt;&quot;We try
very hard to ship the best plants we have available., usually
this<br>&gt;translates to the oldest and largest we have on hand, though
occasionally <br>&gt;we<br>&gt;deem a younger plant is healthier and
select that insrtead. Obviously the<br>&gt;same plant ordered in fall
will be larger than it was in spring.&quot;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;The
perennials I've received were usually 4 in pots or quarts. Shrubs
have<br>&gt;been shipped in 1/2 gallon. Perusing his catalog I see he
lists his<br>&gt;conifers in sizes -2.5 in to 3 gallon. Many of his
shrubs appear to be<br>&gt;gallons.<br>&gt;<br>&gt;They are in Zone 5,
but they grow many plants that do not survive in Zone
<br>&gt;5.<br>&gt;Remember the Zone 7 Viburnum I offered last year? That
came from <br>&gt;Arrowhead.<br>&gt;This is a huge catalogue for the
discerning buyer. They may or may not <br>&gt;have<br>&gt;certain
ordinairy plants, but if you're looking for say, a Saixifraga,
he<br>&gt;has two and a half pages of them, about 120 varieties. And
something that<br>&gt;just caught my eye, (oh, man, I'

ve just GOT to have this one!) Campanula<br>&gt;punctata hyb 'Stevie
Ray' (I am a huge Stevie Ray Vaughan fan!) <br>&gt;Described<br>&gt;as :
By far, the best of the blues... And, as huge as the catalog is,
he<br>&gt;has more. You just need to ask if he has what you are looking
for.<br>&gt;<br>&gt;The owner is gruff to say the least, but well worth
doing business with,<br>&gt;even if you do have to look up your own
hardiness zones and pictures -<br>&gt;that's what google is for. (he
does have many pics at
website)<br>&gt;<br>&gt;Kitty<br>&gt;<br>&gt;----- Original Message

----------<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; There's also Arrowhead Alpines in
Fowlerville, Michigan<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt;


&gt;<br>&gt; &gt; They have an incredible list of plants. I've not
ordered from them,<br>&gt; &gt; but I regularly mark unreasonable
amounts of plants in their paper<br>&gt; &gt; catalog...one of these
days I will place an order.<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; Warning...they
send fairly small plants from what I've heard; tho'<br>&gt; &gt;
supposedly healthy and all, but not huge. The other thing is
they<br>&gt; &gt; refuse to put zone designations for the plants as they
don't think<br>&gt; &gt; zone designations are worth squat and expect
people to do some<br>&gt; &gt; research to find out if the plant will
grow in their specific<br>&gt; &gt; climate. However, if they can grow
it, I imagine anybody in z5<br>&gt; &gt; probably can.<br>&gt;
