As one who has ordered Antoine Hoog's bulbs via Paige Woodward and her Pacific Rim Native Plant Nursery, I can attest to the excellent quality of the bulbs and subsequent success rate growing all that was ordered. In fact, many of the Alliums shown in my Allium "melanocrommyum gallery" on my PlantBuzz website were bulbs from that order. The gallery, and a link to Paige's nursery, is located at: http://plantbuzz.com/Allium/Gallery/… Not only was the quality of the bulbs excellent, but Paige and Antoine stand behind the correct identification of plant materials sold, a commendable yet increasingly rare business practice. I eagerly await a new order this summer... some Alliums, but concentrating on Crocus, and with some Juno Iris and Tulipa thrown in. By the way, the Hoog & Dix on-line catalog serves as a terrific resource for pertinent history and correct parentage on numerous bulb cultivars. It is well worth perusing the pages at http://www.hoogdix.com/ as a botanical primer on bulb nomenclature and cultivar identification.
