Ray Stilwell said I should post a short self-introduction.

My name is Mary Lamb and I live in Seattle WA USA where I am a low-profil=e
member of several plant societies. I did spend a couple of terms on the
Board of Directors of the Friends of the Conservatory in Volunteer Park, =and
I sometimes serve as a docent/tour guide there.

My own gardening is on a small city lot which has become more shaded over
the years, as the neighbor to the west has encouraged his English and
Portuguese laurels, and the neighbors to the east built a six-foot-high
board fence to keep their dogs inside their back yard. Dahlias and lavend=er
have been replaced by aconitums, pulmonarias, hostas, etc. When I saw
Arisaema sikokianum at the Master Gardeners' plant sale about a year ago,=I
had to have it! I was thrilled when the plant showed up again this spring.
Now I see other aroids in the Plant Delights Nursery catalog or in the
gardens of Northwest Perennial Alliance members who open their gardens to
other members, and I hope to add gradually to my own collection.

Slightly off the topic of hardy aroids, although it is hardy in Indonesia=:
The Amorphophallus titanum at the University of Washington bloomed again
last week, and I dropped by to see (and smell) it.
