I have shopped at Agua Fria Nursery for eight years and in my experience they have the best vision for the Santa Fe microclimate. They travel extensively and gather seed from many different areas, and know the subtleties necessary to give the right advice for the right plant. Besides the great perrenials that they specialize in, they also have monstrously gorgeous tomatoes, vegetables, and early spring greens. Lastly, they winter over nearly all of their mature plants outdoors with organic fertilizer, and thus one can see the true nature of the plant, and the true look. Nearly everything is "ready to go outdoors," with the exception of the annuals which everyone seems to require. Cheers! Call em' up! 505-983-4831 ...
PS. It does not matter where you are located, they can send you a catalog and then mail you plants!!!

Over 200 references on the Net seem to confirm that the place exists most complete with name, address and telephone, but there's no reference to a website. Maybe linking back to Watchdog is the default when there's no site. Try calling....
I live in Santa Fe and know the owner Bob Pennington. This is a small, family owned business. Their service is personal, but their catalog is frequently out of date and one is advised to call before assuming they are still taking mail order.
