Do you grow any of the non-onco and non-regelia species?  I forget their
classifications off the top of my head......somethng like pseudoregelia,
psammirises, and I know there's a 3rd group too.

I occasionally see seeds from those 3 "minor" aril groups offered by
rare/exotic/alpine seed catalogs, but never order it because (#1) I fear
it's mislabelled, and (#2) they're probably too difficult in my climate.

But I often thought it would be exciting to get arilbreds with this "other"
aril blood.
