Re: epis

Garden Vision is in Massachusettes.

The 2 bloodroots he carries are "Pink Form" and "Tennessee Form". The pink:
In earliest spring, the buds of this native shade-loving bloodroot variant emerge deep pink. The showy, wide-petaled flowers open light pink and fade to shell pink. Adding to this spectacular composition are the dark pink stems of both leaves and flowers. The reverse sides of the petals remain dark, repeatedly displaying their rich pink blush when they close each evening. $25"

TN Form:
"Our local native bloodroot flowers have a single row of 8 petals while the TN form has at least 2 rows and 16 petals. It is literally covered with flowers, some up to 3.25 inches in diameter. The interior row of petals is slightly narrower and 1/4 in shorter creating a semi-double flower. Very showy, 5-6 in tall in bloom with deeply incised leaves. Grows to 12 in after bloom. $12"

I had a brief correspondence with Mr Probst when I placed my order, hoping to get my Epimediums in April, but he replied that, no, his schedule was better for them and they would arrive in June.

Best time apparently is June.  That's when Daryl Probst sends out the
Ahhh...  That could explain some of my difficulties.  I had ordered
a bunch from Heronswood that went in around April; they'd just decline
with our spring showers until they'd give up the ghost when the heat

Sounds like he's probably waiting until the rainy season sends.

I just received my new Garden Vision catalog today He offers over 180
varieties of Epimedium plus some Iris, Primula, and 2 Sanguinaria including
a pink one. Also one type each of Vancouveria, Trillium, Jeffesonia, and
Lathyrus .
Ohh, man.  How much for the pink Sanguinaria?

Anyone else here grow Jeffersonia?  I bought some from Gene for my
parents' garden and my own yard a few years ago.  They're doing really
well, but I'm disappointed at how short the blooms last!  I've tried
to get a picture for the past two years but was thwarted by rain.
Within two days the flowers were gone.
