Re: Re: Re: Re: plants... the last of them for this year....


No one reference is ever good enough.  No matter how hard they try,
something is always missing - often the one thing you were trying to find!
And it all depends on WHY you are looking it up, as you mentioned for
propagation.  I might be more inclined to want to know how big it gets -
like the Lespedeza we've been dicussing.  That's why probably most of us
have our own libraries (big or small) and lots of bookmarked sites.
