Spring Hill

The Peoria office just processes orders.  Spring Hill also has a location with
real plants in Tipp City, OH, about an hour from here.  They are an ok place 
to buy from in person--nothing to compare with the Blanchette's place in MA, 
but certainly competitive with your neighborhood nursery or garden center.

I think the advice to avoid non-specialists is generally very sound.  However, 
I do have an exception to report.  I once ordered some beardless irises from
Greer Gardens, a general nursery with lots of rhododendrons in Oregon.  They
shipped in spring, which many iris specialists aren't able to do, and the
plants I received were in good shape and have grown well since, maybe in part 
due to spring planting.
