That's okay, one of the nurseries here was selling some rhodies for 
$50 - $75 a plant that will die in our east of the Cascades winter.  
Speaking of which, now I remember what I've been wanting to tell yall 
-- there's a lady one block over from me who has a 6 year old 
*camelia* growing on the north side of her house.  I kid you not!  
That sucker is blooming right now!  I saw it last week and didn't 
believe my eyes so I took her a basket of forsythia stems and chatted 
her up about that camelia.  She doesn't do anything but throw some 
straw around the base for winter protection.  I almost cried when I 
saw it -- Grandma had one just like it.
