RE: AA Catalogue

Kitty, have you ever listened to Kenny Wayne Shepherd (Ledbetter Heights is the name of his first album that I like so much). He's young, but pretty good. He has played with BB King and I think a few times with SRV before he died. He was just a scrawny kid then...I think he's around 22 or 23 years old now. One of those that was born with a guitar in his hand.

HA! Kitty, I never would have guessed you are a Stevie Ray Vaughn fan. How funny. My cockatiel's name is "Stevie Ray Bird" named after the deceased artist. I have every single one of his CD's and jam to them all the time. Love the blues. But..as they say...you can't fully appreciate the blues..unless "you done had the blues your own self".

I'll have to look into this catalog you are talking about. Never heard of it. Sounds good.

I have ordered from Arrowhead several times. Perennials as well as woodies.
Their plants are not small, IMO. Here's what he says in the catalog:
"We try very hard to ship the best plants we have available., usually this
translates to the oldest and largest we have on hand, though occasionally we
deem a younger plant is healthier and select that insrtead. Obviously the
same plant ordered in fall will be larger than it was in spring."

The perennials I've received were usually 4 in pots or quarts. Shrubs have
been shipped in 1/2 gallon. Perusing his catalog I see he lists his
conifers in sizes -2.5 in to 3 gallon. Many of his shrubs appear to be

They are in Zone 5, but they grow many plants that do not survive in Zone 5.
Remember the Zone 7 Viburnum I offered last year? That came from Arrowhead.
This is a huge catalogue for the discerning buyer. They may or may not have
certain ordinairy plants, but if you're looking for say, a Saixifraga, he
has two and a half pages of them, about 120 varieties. And something that
just caught my eye, (oh, man, I've just GOT to have this one!) Campanula
punctata hyb 'Stevie Ray' (I am a huge Stevie Ray Vaughan fan!) Described
as : By far, the best of the blues... And, as huge as the catalog is, he
has more. You just need to ask if he has what you are looking for.

The owner is gruff to say the least, but well worth doing business with,
even if you do have to look up your own hardiness zones and pictures -
that's what google is for.  (he does have many pics at website)
