I have some seeds of a turkish species in a pot some where. It came from the Archibalds, I think it may have been a Norman Stevens collection.

Tony, one of the best (if not the best) is the silver splashed form of the native Aristolochia fimbriata.

Is Norman Stevens still operating?

Yes, I am waiting on a parcel from him at the moment. He was at some of the shows last spring too. His plants are always good value.

I have some seeds of A. longa if they'd be of use? I'm not sure where it is native but the original seed could have been from Archibald. I bought it from a Christchurch NZ source. If you's like, PM with your address. Must get some off to Fermi and Anthony too.
