Hi all. I have been hanging around the plant i.d. forums and decided to branch out a little! Here's what's on my mind. In England, if you have every known variety of any plant, you can apply to be designated as the host of the National Collection of that plant. There is a guy who has the National Collection of clematis, a school that has the National Collection of euphorbia, et cetera. Obviously you have to be sociable as well as dedicated. I wonder if there has ever been a movement to do this kind of thing in the U.S.? I doubt I could fit the National Collection of anything on my little quarter acre, but some of my neighbors could pull it off.
