If you remember...

The photo galleries are by far the best threads, no doubt about it.

I thought it would be helpful if we start labeling the cultivar with where we got it.

For one it gives the nursery credit and two it tells everyone where to get it!

RE: If you remember...

That's a really good idea Will. We can also take it a step further by providing what grower actually produced the plant so we can tell our favorite nursery where to get it for us. As much fun it is for me to travel, it's inconvenient at times for me to fly cross-country for a plant that might be sold out.

It's also very helpful to provide the history of the plant along with the picture. I maintain that the history is just as important as the plant, itself. Passing along the history honors the discoverer/developer and adds greatly to the educational nature of these forums.

Dave: Great point on history and provenance. Couldn't have said it better.
