One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

There was a lot of action in the Asian Collections today
The volunteers came in and moved dwarf mondo grass around bare stone steps amongst other things. Hundreds of school children thundered through the garden in a non-destructive way. And Robert Webster, botanist in the USNA Herbarium came out to voucher (produce herbarium specimens) of ours in fruit. We must have one of the best collections of Asian Cercis outside of Asia itself.
