I once heard a garden talk where the lecturer suggested no one ever plants
for the long term "who would plant Rhododendron sinograndes and probably
not live to see it flower" he said. We had a fine specemin which flowerd
and set seed, we both planted  and sold seedlings, some people really do
plant for the future, and some times get to see the results too!
