I really am addicted...
I just got an e-mail from a nursery near Columbus Ohio (Bakers Acres -- if you live anywhere nearby, you've got to go check them out. Coolest tender perennials out there) saying that they will have a "limited number" of Strobilanthes gossypinus for sale probably in late April.
Let me make this clear: a nursery 4.5 hours away from me is going to have one plant I want for sale. What did I do when I got this e-mail? I turned to my calendar and wrote "Trip to Bakers Acres" in large letters over the last week in April. Yes, I really do plan my vacations around plants. I'd find that a little sad, only I'm too excited about getting Strobilanthes gossypinus!
