The Plantsman

December 2014

In this issue of The Plantsman we hear about the many new cultivars of Eranthis, smaller Teucrium for rock gardens, South African Strumaria, the suspicious death of David Douglas, Zingiber mioga and its cultivars, growing Galanthus species, plant-parasitic nematodes, and developing a yellow sweet pea. Additionally, the plantsperson biography is on Percy Picton.
