Re: Japanese pictures
Looks to me like the 'nertschinskia' picture is sibirica, not sanguinea.
Do I see branched stems in the background? The color is certainly more
typical of sibirica, as is the form.
The japonica picture comes up on my browser as near-white. My own plants
of japonica are much bluer than the picture.
