Just found this info from this link
http://www.easywildflowers.com/quality/cea.amer.htm
so maybe seeds would be best way to go........
"New Jersey tea is a drought tolerant species that grows best in well-drained soils with full sun. New Jersey tea is difficult to transplant, therefore propagation by seed is recommended. Seeds should be planted outside in the late fall or early winter. To improve seed germination for spring planting the seeds should be submerged in hot water (180 deg. F) and allowed to soak overnight as the water cools then planted outside"

Thanks Signet :)

I just missed some nice small plants at the Friends of the Gardens sale at UWO but I already had more than I could carry. I went back the next day but they were all gone.

Thanks for the info. I think this would be a great addition to a sunny dry spot, perfect for butterflies.

Mike
