Re: OT: Rare plants

From: Janet Yang <jyang1@home.com>

    There's rare as in "endangered/low population", and then there's rare as in
"not often found in commerce". Fortunately, endangered doesn't appeal to me--the
responsibility is daunting. I covet the plants that get praised by my favorite
writers, but some of them are not popular enough or easy enough to be profitable
to growers. Sometimes the plants are clearly not true-to-name cultivars. That
really bugs me, spending money on designer plants and getting a seed-propagated
knock-off. For example, I bought Penstemon 'Husker Red' from White Flower Farm,
but it really should have been named 'Husker Green'....
