Now that Ron Ratko has retired it looks as though it is going to be impossible to get hold of wild seed from the North Western USA

well there goes my idea of growing some North American alpines from seed  :'(

A bit earlier in this thread, I introduced you to Dorothy Staggs.
She is someone you should know about.
And of course that amazing Lewisia bed I showed earlier is hers!!!

Dorothy lives in Montana (Lewisia rediviva is the official state flower of that state) and has devoted the past few decades to this particular species---in terms of education, propagation and spreading it far and wide.

Her web site, Bitterroot Heaven, is an insightful view into the species (and into the psyche of this amazing woman).
Her "stages of growth" page is particularly worth looking at.

http://bitterrootheaven.com/default.html

Do check it out.

The photograph is hers.
so many species....so little time
