Rohdeas at Edgewood Gardens

Hi Jude,

Yes, all my Rohdeas are outside in the garden - woodland or woodland edge,
perfect drainage, sloping southerly or south-easterly aspect.  I probably
grow about a dozen named cultivars and others that friends have given me as
their seedlings, or seedlings of my own that I've selected for some sort of
foliage quirk - mainly very narrow or crested leaves.  I grew a few hundred
from seed from variegated parents and not a single one was variegated, at
least for the first 2 years.

Jim W certainly grows them in KC.

Hi John - happened to check out your website, and you have about a dozen
Rohdeas listed in the collection - are you growing them outdoors in
Pennsylvania? That's pretty impressive. Have you tried any Aspidistra? 
Has anybody tried Rohdeas in Massachusetts? (Or another zone 5 location) and
