Thanks for all the feedback on an otherwise dead PBS day.  You guys are
great!  :-)

I found one interesting source that probably has reliably true species...

They remind me of Rocky Mountain Rare Plants who stopped selling 1 or 2
years ago.  RMRP went on seed collecting expeditions, and included those
offerings with their garden grown seed.  I may buy a few from Alpains, but
I wish they had A. longissima and A. brevistyla.

With as much obvious interest as there is in columbines, I'm really
surprised there's no national or international society.  No Aquliegia
registry?  Etc...

When I look at pictures, like A. barnebyi, I'm driven somewhat crazy to
know how the heck is that different from A. canadensis.  Likewise with all
the yellow flowered species from the southwest USA.  How are they different
from each other, deserving species status?

Some days the internet disappoints me.  Google, what good are you!?  ;-)
