Re: chicory

I teach a class at the Garden Gate called Native and Heritage Plants.
Apparently, the Southern Living Garden book prefers heritage, to
naturalized. Or, at least they use heritage to describe those plants that
are so associated with the deep south. Meaning Camellias, Azaleas, Wisteria,
etc. I always inform my "students" of where the plant is actually native to.
So Jim has a good point. Maybe the term should be redefined to explain that
if it's native, we traced it as far back in N. America as possible.

And I am babbling. I'll quit now. I'm tired.
