First real (non-test) plants go into the new greenhouse at the National Arboretum...well, maybe they're kind of test plants

But we do care about them! Amanda and I moved three flats of seedlings from Chris Carley's NACPEC collecting trip into Propagation Room 2. Mist will run intermittently during the day. The seeds come from cold-stratification in our new cooler! Wow, look at us! One of the seed trays (actually the one Amanda is adjusting) is Acer henryi, a very nice fast-growing tree with white bark that has interesting flowers and beautiful seeds in pendant racemes.
