Hi folks,

I think enough opinions have been said on this topic and we may allow this
thread to rest in peace. Let's get back to discussing geophytes. :)

I'm away from my Berkeley home base for a while, spending some time here in
the Great Frozen North of Minnesota. At the moment, temps fluctuate around
0F (-17C) so no Mediterranean-type winter geophytes will survive. This
autumn I saw a fruiting of Clintonia borealis, a true cold hardy species. I
believe the local woods also host Sanguinaria canadensis, a really elegant
spring flower that I encountered once in the Great Smoky Mountain National
Park. I longed to see those again and I think I'll get a chance to see them
when the snow melts, whenever that happens to be (hopefully March and not
