Trying to figure this out, I've never used a listserver system before!!
Hope it works this time.
Rayâs note of welcome asked for a brief introduction, so here it is;=hope itâ
s not too verbose.
Iâm 63 years old, married for 42 years, have one grown son. Althoug=h a PhD
organic chemist, I have worked for many years in machine design and ceramicarmor development. Iâve been an avid, though informal, gardener fo=r my entire
life. My wife and I live on 6+ wooded hillside acres in SE Pennsylvania a=nd
garden (more or less, mostly less) on about 2 acres of it
I began hunting for deer resistant plants after their depredations destroye=d
most of my hemerocallis, hosta, and lilium and many of my other plantings. In addition to a fair collection of epimediums, I have begun growing
hellebores and other species which are hopefully less tasty to them. A. t=riphyllum
is native here and I have thousands in all sizes and colors growing in mywoods and gardens, but I did not become greatly interested in aroids until =I
encountered Arum Italicum growing in a winter garden and my wife loved it. =I
planted it everywhere, and added more arums as I found them with a couple o=f
pinellia thrown in also. Further research turned up the potential of the
marvelous foliage of the hardy Amorphophallus and Dracunculus, so I have adÞd
them to my garden last year. This led to the Arisaemas.
I am particularly fascinated with the sinarisaema group plants because of
their foliage. I purchased some consanguineum tubers last summer, planted
them, and started looking for more kinds, apparently Iâm now addictí. While
purchasing arisaema seeds and tubers on eBay, I began correspondence with
Giorgio Pozzi, a member here, and I would like to particularly thank him fo=r his
assistance, generosity, and encouragement.
