Re: terms/hollyhock?? OT Poke

RE>>  I have had some variegated plants come up from time to time, but I
guess mine are just accidents of nature.
Zem,  That's often how they come up with cultivars.  An accident of
nature which is then 'selected'.  Sometimes the selection is named and
sold, or it is bred with others to refine these accidental
characteristics.  Blooms of Bressingham often runs ads in the hort mags
offering home gardeners and ameteur hybridizers"help" with bringing their
special finds to market.  Maybe you should take them up on it.  ;+)Kitty

  Kitty, I also get a kick out of thinking people would actually buy
  poke weed.  That 's just another instance of plants' obviously not
  being invasive everywhere.  I have had some variegated plants come up
  from time to time, but I guess mine are just accidents of nature.
