    Thanks for the information Mike.
    It just shows that the text descibing the cultivar is just as important as the photo.

    Anyone can name a cultivar anyway they would like and register it and certainly plenty of butt ugly ones have already been named. I bring up Delores Wyland which has been pulled from production.[/QUOTE]
    Having met the actual Delores Wyland I feel the need to speak up for her and the cultivar named after her. A large well grown plant of this cultivar is actually quite stunning and beats out half the stuff that I have seen passed through the pages of CPN recently. So for you to dictate that S. 'Delores Wyland' is "butt ugly" is as much a falacy as some one calling S. 'Scarlet Belle' butt ugly. To each their own.

    To each their own indeed! Everyone certainly has their own tastes.

    What I find interesting that in both cases the statement that a large well grown plant is the point that it transforms from just another plant (or butt ugly if you prefer) to something more than that. It is amazing that with so many genera how important culture is and what a huge difference it can make to the appearance of the plant.

    Tamiln,
    I was looking thorugh one of my plant catlogues last night and found a source for Scarlet Bells and remembered you were looking. Try Tony Avent's nursery, Plant Delights in NC. Scarlet Bells is a UNC hybrid. www.plantdelights.com
