Here's a site with lots of gorgeous pictures:

http://www.thealpinegarden.com/default.htm

And the North American Rock Garden Society site provides articles on how
to build a rock garden and pictures & links

http://www.nargs.org/

Are you looking for sites that will help you purchase alpines / rock garden plants?
I'll come back tonight to check... gotta get to work right now.

My favorite sources for seed besides the NARGS seedex are www.rmrp.com "Rocky Mountain Rare Plants" and www.Alplains.com "Alplains". You'll have to call or e-mail Alplains for a catalogue as their website isn't up yet.

I've also been looking at the following as well... still haven't ordered from them but they have some very interesting offerings:

www.jjaseeds.com/ "Jim and Jenny Archibalds site"
www.gardensnorth.com/site/index.htm "Gardens North"
www.silverhillseeds.co.za/ "Silverhill Seed"
www.mesagarden.com "Mesa Gardens" Cacti and assort. succulents

Another favorite plants source is www.rockgardenplants.com/"Beaver Creek Greenhouse"

If you are a member of NARGS the quarterlies also have advertisments with information to several other sources that I have yet to try.

If you search this link for "seed/plant sources you should come up with alot of information. https://listserv.surfnet.nl/scripts/wa.exe?A0=alpine-l. Hope this works.
