detailed seed-starting info below

Grew these from seed in winter 2005. Planted in the orchard holding area in spring, and noticed they are still doing OK in late fall. Finding the right place for these plants, which prefer a woodland setting, will be a challenge in our young suburban garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
