Angie, it isn't "snitching", think of it in the same way you think of birds scattering seeds...we are just helping spread the beauty to other places. It is like my neighbor's angel wing begonia that is wonderfully beautiful. The wind from Ike really did a job on that begonia, so while she and I were picking up debris, she was throwing broken pieces of the begonia in the trash also. I helped her but I kept the begonia debris and started a bunch of new baby begonias.
Same thing with seeds, we are just helping spread the beauty.
Thanks for writing.
Oh, and yes you know I would love the baptisia!!!!
I have some of that hardy begonia from my sister's garden and I love it. It's so attractive at the edge of a shady border. I'll get some of the baptisia in the mail to you if you'll D-mail me your address. Hugs, Angie
