    Just means you have to spend more time enjoying them and keeping an eye on them to prevent the spread.

    I have quite a few, but I need to go out and take inventory again-- my collection has out-paced my growlist.

    U. jamesoniana
    U. praetermissa*
    U. quelchii*

    the only ones i aint sure about being in the states are unifolia, buntingiana and campbelliana....alpina is darn easy to come by if you look, asplundi a lil less so....the hybrids quelchii praetermissa 'Jitka' and alpina x endressii are not to hard to find either if yah got decent trading material

    One I've not seen listed here yet is U. pubescens. I have some of that-- cute little button leaves!

    I REALLY need to go count, now.

    I agree they are in the states, but getting ahold of them without importing is the issue. You need something special to trade for them, connections, blackmail, or just luck. I'd love to see a few of them up on the auction this year. Hint...Hint... I've have been looking for U. alpina for about a year with no luck. Its the general trading issues, the people that have the rarer plants that are growing well don't want anything the average CP grower has. The few I've seen for sale are either really expensive or just look unhealthy.

    I've managed to get 3 of them over about a year, which I think is pretty good and I'm happy with that rate. Someday I'll track down an U. alpina, I'm not in any hurry.

    That's all you want? You never asked me!

    I can send you some U. alpina in May.
