Correct, Tony, they look at DNA sequencing.  As I advised Harold, when in
doubt, look at Alan Weakley's Flora.

Nathan:

We grew asarum from seed this year and they were amazingly easy.  Harold
Holmes has the most experience with this.  We typically don't get good
asarum seed set here.

As far a taxonomy goes, everytime the southeast taxonomist try to just the
retention of the genus hexastylis, they neglect to look at all of the Asian
asarum species....truly bizarre.

Now, if only taxonomists would quit MUCKING with stuff!  Sheesh!  I think
taxonomy was invented to employ taxonomists.

I have some Asarum hartwegii that appear to self-sow.
