3 withheld but 2 are now being released under their "old names" which are on the "accepted" list  :) ; Astragalus loanus unfortunately isn't :'(

Thank you to the seed packers!  I received my seeds today -- even more than I asked for!  Now to decide which of the three alternate germination procedures to try for the Erigeron Aureus!  May we all have such luck with our seeds as these researchers in Russia, who have grown a plant from a 30,000 year old seed! http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/technology/science/ice-age-plant-reg...

Great news, Linda, and welcome to the site!  I love seeing Erigeron aureus in the wild, definitely one of my favourites!
That's an amazing news story!

Thanks for the welcome.  I think I'll try some of the E. aureus seed at room temp (or porch temp) and cold-stratify some.  I may not have Lori's magic touch.
