John: One of my friends in Michigan just found something interesting the other week. A nursery there is selling seed grown Asarum europeum...only the plants they are selling are obvious hybrids with Asarum canadense. Who knew?

It has spread nicely over the years. And today I was looking for evidence of seed pods in hopes of donating them to the PBS BX but I can't find anything. Am I too late? Or is it feasible that my colony is all one self-sterile clone?
