Dear all,
	Seems a slow time in the garden especially after all the 
lingering damage from this spring, but now just finishing is a plant 
of Anthericum sp. As Mark MacD says on the wiki : It is an "excellent 
yet underused ornamental species" in reference to A ramosum in the 
Northeast US. He also says it is generally considered somewhat 
tender, but isn't for him in USDA Zone 5.  I have an excellent large 
plant originally from Panayoti Kelaidis that has hundreds of small 
white blooms each summer.
	It seems to me the differences between species are small, but 
around 300 are recognized over a large range.

	So I am curious are any of these species grown by PBS-ers?

	It seems a sort of marginal 'bulbous' plant, but I haven't 
see what the underground parts look like in years.

	Any one have experiences to share on this one?

			Thanks.		Jim W.
