Re: rtd f/DC

I did a little search on the blue sanicle.  Calhort  says part to full
shade, so I put mine in shade.  But that's California sun, not Indiana.
Arrowhead's site says light shade and they're in Michigan.  That could have
been one of my problems.  Soil: Calhort says just "medium" soil.  I thought
I'd read somewhere that it needed extra attention.

I may have confused the need for special soil requirements with names of
other less-known "S" plants.  Synthyris pinnatifida died off on me too.  I
found a reference that mentions, "[Synthyris] from the Rocky Mountains,
allied to Wulfenia,...does best in a cool, shady place with free soil."
Well, I never had any luck with Wulfenia either.  And I assume 'free' soil
means loose, which mine was not.  The other "S" plant was Soldanella montana
which requires "well drained but moisture retentive soil in a cool position
free from overhead shrubs or trees."  It is suggested Soldanella be grown in
an Alpine house as it is from European mountains.  We don't normally have
really "cool" summers here either which may have helped in their demise.

I'm guessing your greenhouse is getting your Sanicula from Terra Nova.  If
you have any questions re their culture, I'm sure they'd be glad to help
