Dear Jane,

>RE: Anemone biflora	 It is, however, hardy to at least 20 F.

	I wish I could find more accurate information about this 
plant, growing conditions, hardiness, availability etc.

	I'd love to try it here.

	Anemone nemorosa cvs are blooming here now. This is a great 
garden plant. I agree the multi-petalled, green and mop head types 
are not especially to my liking. But it and A ranunculoides are real 
treats this time of year.

	On a vaguely related note, Can anyone suggest a source for 
single-flowered Ranunculus? Like the florist R. asiaticus of whatever 
this species really is, but with single flowers. I have seen these 
growing and love them, but where can you buy tubers?

	Which also reminds me of Ranunculus 'Brazen Hussy' blooming 
now in rounded clumps with shiny bright yellow flowers against deep 
dark foliage. Brazen indeed!

		Thanks	Jim
