Hi, all  -I see Tony has answered the question about 'Polly Spout', and I 
have nothing more to add, other than that it's a gorgeous and completely 
well-behaved plant, and we'll have a handful to sell when I get around to 
putting them on the website.

Thanks, Mark, for your kind words about my talk in Raleigh  -
