Re: now Aconitum and Anemone

We tried to get A. Party Dress this year but Walter's sold out. A. Crispa
looks stunning and the leaves look like something from a Pelargonium.  A.
Bodnant Beauty has been around for a few years I believe and a google shows
places carrying it, but no one has a picture - do you think they'd like to
buy mine? ;+)  The one I posted, if cropped would be pretty good.  I just
really like the color, but wish the petals were wider.
