I just received this message from Barbara Ward Grubb:
"Strong circumstantial evidence suggests that Lithodora diffusa 'Grace Ward'
was named after my mother. I have easily found that plant, but I am searching
for the variant named 'Baby Barbara.'  The same circumstantial evidence
leads me to suspect that it was named after me around 1954.
  I would love to find pictures, actual plants, or seeds of 'Baby Barbara,'
just so I know what it looks like.
  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks,
Barbara Ward Grubb"

If anyone can supply information or - especially! - a plant or seeds, please contact Barbara directly at:

Thanks for your help -
Joyce

Very nice!  That seems to be one that I cannot get established... no reason for it, though.

Here are some from out in the wild blue yonder... very late ones, and probably the last I will see this year:
1) Veronica wormskjoldii
2) Delphinium bicolor
3) Myosotis alpestris, now Myosotis asiatica

A couple of iris captured in Anne Spiegel's beautiful New York State garden.

Many images of Anne's special garden are to be found on this 'topic' of the SRGC. Please follow this link:-
