Dear all;
	 I can't emphasize enough how important provenance is to 
gardeners such as myself who try to grow tender plants in cold 
climates. Too often plants in cultivation come from only a single or 
few introductions. I hope you'll try these two new accessions around 
the country.
	There are a couple of plants I'd sure like to get from the 
northern edge of their range instead of the southern plants available 
now. (or in Argentina's case the southern end of the range) and 
higher altitude too.

	Good luck and keep us posted about success and failure (hope not).

		Best	Jim W.
