Raised from Jim Archibald seed (JJA 1.180.550). The seed was originally collected by John Andrews in openings amongst Pines at 1840m in the Cuddy Valley, Kern Co, California.

Philip MacD was here last week and I wanted to give him a plant he grew from seed - Arisaema yamatense var. sugimotoi.  I initially thought he had grown it from NARGS seed. When I checked my old inventory I found my deceased plant listed as via PMcD ex Archibald 1994, we had jointly ordered that year from the 1995 catalogue.

From the catalogue under Section III seeds from cultivated plants and other areas: "yamatense var. sugimoto D. Elick coll. Japan, Honshu Shizuoka Pref., Ogasa. nr. sea level. 13.11.94 (Local) with long-acuminate, green spathes, yellowish inside. Pedate leaves, sometimes silvered. (8 seeds) E = Ł4.50 "  So not JJA seed but Elick's and still a very robust & dependable plant.  It clumps vigorously and in a good year is  approx. 5 feet tall.  Four pix follow.  I was able to get a few corms last month from a garden where a friend once lived and despite neglect it is alive and doing very well.

Turns out I had already give Philip a corm.  Perhaps this should be under Arisaema rather than Archibald???  johnw

From Adrian Cooper on Facebook: " Finally after many years Paeonia mascula subsp hellenica var. Icarica is flowering. This was the last seed from the Archibald’s sown in 2008 and represents this very special restricted community from the Ikaria foothills, Atheras, Greece."

Again from Adrian Cooper :
 " Once again my old plant, actually an original 3 seedlings sown 35 years ago from Archibald wild collected in the Samaria Gorge at Agios Nikolaos, Crete is flowering beautifully in the Alpine House. I now have this established outside and some of these are about to flower for the first time."

712798-0
Paeonia rhodia

712800-1
Paeonia rhodia

"These 3 seed raised Paeonia rhodia have really grown since being planted out in the Bulb House bed in November 2014. They were sown in the autumn of 1996 from Archibald seed. I have some direct sown plants growing in a sheltered spot outside that were unaffected by this winter or the Beast from the East ...."

712804-2
Paeonia rhodia


"I actually had the privilege to speak to Jim Archibald in the late 90’s about his collections/experiences of peonies and this is why I am joining him in his views that are from a much greater experience/knowledge than myself.

This is one of my choicest peonies from the last Archibald list. Paeonia tomentosa from NE Azerbaijan. There are 4 separate plants here sown in October 2008 now growing in the Bulb House bed."
