From Mike Tucker on Facebook:
"Camassia quamash subsp. breviflora JCA 11122 collected 1989 California, Modoc Co. Devils Garden, 1500m.
A much slighter and delicate plant then the usual Camasia, after years still only 2 bulbs but happy outside."

From Adrian Cooper on Facebook : "Over the moon to finally have this Paeonia mascula subsp. hellenica flowering for the first time on the Olive Terraces. This was the last of Archibald’s wild seed from the Evia population sown in 2008. "

At the East Anglia  AGS Show in 2023, Chris Lilley won the Farrer Medal with this plant of Paeonia wendelboi - this plant was grown by Jim Archibald even before it was formally named and was given to Chris by Jenny Archibald after Jim's death.  This info from Tim Ingram.

From Adrian Cooper on Facebook.... This is a 25+ year seed raised Paeonia arietina from Jim Archibald seed, Soganli Daglari, Gumushane, Turkey. This is a compact plant growing in the shade of an Olive Tree.

It has taken 6 years for this Paeonia suffructicosa Joseph Rock to re-establish after i had to move it as it was growing too large. This is one of 2 survivors from a 1997 sowing of wild source seed from Jim Archibald. This is over 7’ tall with huge flowers and should hopefully now continue growing whilst the other is still only 4’.

Maggi,

I never ordered directly from JJA; but several things I grow are 1 or 2 generations removed from JJA adult seedlings. 2 nurseries that I deal with use JJA plants as mother stock for some of their offerings.

Falls City, OR USA

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F -9.4C.  Rainfall 50" 110 cm + but none  June-September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight. Soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.

   Great news, Marc- and one that shows the quality of the Archibald offerings in the past.

Lambley Nursery, Victoria, Australia is run by David Glenn and Criss Canning, who write ( in a Facebook post) :
" My favourite plant is Agastache ‘Sweet Lili’, which arose in a bed of A. rupestris we raised from Jim and Jenny Archibald seed. ‘Sweet Lili’ is obviously a hybrid but is so much better than all the other Humming Bird Mint varieties which we grow. It has pink flowers with a hint of apricot suffused through and is in bloom from December until the end of April. It is also grows taller than most of its tribe, making nearly 5 feet tall by 3 feet across when mature. It is now used widely in the landscape trade in Australia. I named it for my granddaughter Lili."

From Melvyn Jope on Facebook:

Further photos of Cyclamen persicum JCA 1050
"The first photo is from the Watts collection. It’s Cyclamen persicum from Lebanon collected by Jim Archibald and recorded as JCA 1050. I am delighted to be able to look after this plant now as Jim gave me seed from it many years ago and the following three photos show plants derived from the original."

699.809 : NARCISSUS CANTABRICUS (subsp. cantabricus) Morocco, Targuist. Ex JWB 89-30.
As far as I can see there is no previous pic of this number. One of my favourite forms but with me it tends to go back to tiny bulbils after flowering and takes time to build up again.

I believe you are correct, Darren - that's a "new" one for the archive - and what a delightful plant it is.
