Hi,

I have several clumps of this beautiful plant in my slope garden and would like to get more. Any ideas on where to obtain it?

Thanks!
Bob

You could try this site:

Sunlight Gardens and Pine Ridge Gardens are both out of stock at the moment.

If you want a large quanity, i.e., 72 or multiples thereof,
here's a grower in FL that TC's them. I have seen their Spigelia on display at the SNA Trade Show and they are fairly large, healthy looking plants.
If you don't want that many, see if a friend or friends would share an order with you.
Best to call for availibility, as they don't always have everthing on their list in stock.

If the sources listed above don't work out for you, try Gardens of the Blue Ridge (www.gardensoftheblueridge.com).
I bought some plants from them last summer (including 3 spigelia marilandicas) and was very pleased with them. The plants were healthy and of a good size and have grown well this spring. Unfortunately, just as the spigelias were about to bloom a few weeks ago, a deer lopped the tops off of them, so it looks like I'll have to cage them and wait until next year for flowers.

Thanks for all the replies - I'll be getting more shortly. I think this is my favorite plant in my garden, especially at this time of the year.
