Judy, Judy, Judy, 

	A recent issue of the RHS ’The Garden ‘ magazine extolled the virtues of Joe Sharmon’s hybridizing efforts to develop more cvs of Ranunculus/Ficaria verna. His Monksilver Nursery offers 46 cultivars for sale within the UK including his new series of ‘French Lady’ hybrids.   I currently grow about 8 or 9 and just ordered 2 more this week and they are fine in my climate with the possible exception of ‘Brazen Hussy’. This one lives up to its name, but it is too cute to ever intentionally dig out.

	These do fine in my climate and offer an early spring display of color in flower and foliage. Any more Ranunculus fans out there?

		Best and good luck with your  ‘problem’.    Jim
