RE: OT: Rare plants

From: "J.F. Hensler" <hensler@povn.com>

The definition of rare in this garden could easily mean "scarce" or 
"unusual" (at least for our area).

The current list of "rare" plants includes honest to goodness blooming LAs 
(who'd have thought they'd like it here?!), moonflowers (courtesy of Mike 
Greenfield), heirloom garden plants so long out of commerce they're still 
in the process of being identified, variegations of all kinds that pop up 
every year), first of their kind (maybe) species crosses (this year it's a 
veronica and a lupine). "Rare" are the tomatoes and beans who've come back 
from the dead after a hard frost and a long list of things that have been 
developed over the years for traits not found in their commercially 
available counterparts.

"Rare" are the 5 unusual foxgloves that actually germinated from T&M seed. 
"Rare" is the variegated vetch who's found a home under the tied dyed 
blooms of geranium "Splish Splash".

Even more "rare" is the plant that behaves itself, staying in its own 
boundaries, not making demands, and looking gorgeous year after year.  :)
