I hope I don't sound like I'm trying to be smart, but I want to be sure it gets across that this really is a pseudata (one of my biggest new obsessions). You can see it on this page: http://www.draycott-gardens.com/otherframe.html

They were potted up upon receipt while I was waiting for our foundation work to complete. They ended up being planted in November (!) when the ground was frozen to a depth of three inches. All survived and six will bloom this year.
