Thanks Folia friends

Saturday, 06 Aug 11 Overcast 20°C / 68°F

I got immediate feed back on my inquiry for my mystery plants and found the Astrantia at only one special nursery. It has gone out of style in our region so it is harder to find. The nursery told me that it once was a very popular “old plant” but for some reason is not as in fashion today.

They had several varieties so I picked up 2 on sale! So for 6 bucks I can try them in my part shade garden.

Thanks again – You guys ROCK!

    I got mine from a friends’ division. Maybe they arent so well known so aren’t sought after so nurseries dont carry them in a self perpetuating cycle?
