Re: Baptisa/ Amsonia

I have an Amsonia tabernaemontana that I'd like to move but can't. I
planted it years ago a foot or two from the southeast edge of a maple.
It's gotten too shady in recent years so it doesn't flower as well, but
I can't get a shovel into the soil there.

I collected seed from it one year and they germed easily and grew well,
but I gave many away and sold the rest. I tried again last year but it
was a wet summer and, being shaded, I don't think the seed was viable;
not one came up. I'd like to try again one of these days.

    My wife grows many of the same plants you list here from your gardens. 
Same story.... she is just now branching out into some of the salvia.
Another plant that did well throughout the drought was Amsonia. None of the 
species or cultivars I have here seemed to care one way or the other about 
the drought or the following deluge. Foliage still nice and clean.
