Dear All,

Last week we were hiking with the digital camera along and got some nice 
shots of the Veratrum fimbriatum leaves so I can illustrate my point about 
how pretty in the spring they are (and large). It's the cucumber beetle 
here that takes little bites out of the leaves, but they usually hatch out 
latter so the leaves are still looking pristine. Now why would you call 
this species unattractive? Jane said a lot of them are not prized because 
they have green flowers. But the flowers in this species are white and 
fringed and very striking.…
