A friend of mine grows this:

Tillia henryana S 1999621.G

Does anyone have an idea which collector might have found this tree?

Could it be shorthand for the species author citation... yikes, look at that name!  (also, note Tilia spelling)

Tilia henryana Szyszyłowicz,

Possibly, it is an Accession Number from an arboretum.

And another one: Thalictrum flexuosum HC 970351 (according to the RHS a synonym for Thalictrum minus ssp. minus)
Just saw HCM = Heronswood Chile so maybe it's this one???

Wim,

 I have the old Heronswood catalogs at home and will check the HC collection location unless someone beats me to it.

 I have a Polygonatum SBQE310 supposedly collected from Kangchenjunga. If the collection number is right, am I safe to assume it is the Tibetan side of the mountain? If someone knows where I can find the actual list of plants/seed collected it would be of great help.

 Thanks,

In the Plantfinder list, CM and W is listed as Cheese M, Mitchel J and Watson J but wasn't the M Tony (therefore A) Mitchell? He came to live and work in NZ for a while but didn't like either NZ or Australia and I think thereafter went to south Africa.

Aaron,

Kangchenjunga has no Tibetan side, it lies on the border of Nepal and N India (Sikkim) but not in Tibet. The "Q" of the SBQE refers to the Quinghai province of China, part of this province used to belong to Tibet but was added after the confiscation of Tibet by the Chinese to Quinghai. Quinghai province is a good distance away from Kangchenjunga and a large part of todays Tibet lies in between so I am a bit puzzled by your reference to Kangchenjunga for this expedition?.

I have now a colchicum sp. with a first time flower grown from (ex) JW5629 (via SRGC seedex).
I suppose JW stands for John Watson, but does anyone know from what area/country the plant's origin is ?
And even better, does anyone has an ID for this one ?
