What grows and flowers well is obviously a function of a lot of things.  My post implied that R pentaphyllum is a shy bloomer ... well, for me it is.  Other climates, other clones who knows. We do not have a pronounced dormancy here in the Oakland/Berkeley hills, but that does not seem to affect most rh's I grow. And "woodland gardens" we do not really have. Woodlands really imply throwaway space, but on a little over 1/2 there is little space to ignore.  R quinquefolium is considered here to be the "elegant" and perhaps more desireable plant.  My absolute best is R tashiroi (from a Japanese seed selection).  Compact, free blooming but, there are so many fine things available from the Species Foundation that I no longer pursue the seed thing ... and given space limitations one must be very selective.

Stupid me. I just checked out the RSF. I assumed they only sold seeds. Now i'm going to be a kid in a candy store. Thanks, Bill.

With reservations ... just gotta say it:  that is a very nice rh but really do not think it is R pentaphyllum (flower shape, foliage etc) ....  all other comments still hold .... Bill Moyles
