non-aroid: Elegia capensis


Re. the Elegia capensis

Yes, some of us are very excited about them and haul them home from
the Bay Area to Seattle in carry-on bags.

There are some great Restios in the Strybing entry garden and you can buy
them at The Dry Garden Nursery and Berkeley Hort Nursery, both in Berkeley.
 Ernie Wasson is a great source of information -- find him on the Bay Area
Gardener web site at http://www.gardens.com/story/story.htm.

Martin Grantham, curator of the University of California Botanical Garden,
is probably one of the most knowledgeable growers of Restios in the
country.  http://www.mip.berkeley.edu/garden

Rick Darke's new book, COLOR ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ORNAMENTAL GRASSES : SEDGES,
RUSHES, RESTIOS, CAT-TAILS, AND SELECTED BAMBOOS is one of the few I've
seen covering the topic.

Mike Lee, owner of Colvos Creek Nursery on Vashon Island WA, is growing
quite a few Restios right now -- and he does mail order.

There are a few of us in the Seattle area growing Restios, but we've been
protecting them in the the Zone 8a winters -- they're supposed to be hardy
outside, but after hauling them home on the plane from Berkeley a gallon
pot at a time you hate to take the risk.

And now....back to Amorphophallus, eh?
