Right. I suppose the Austin, Craig, and Muhlestein catalogs aren't available
other than among friends.
I wish some entrepreneur would put together and sell a photo catalog of newer
and best older eastern hybridized introductions. For those of us who don't
or can't travel to see them in bloom. The big color catalogs are so
dominated by west coast introductions.
