    @kayaker78: I thank you deeply for the offer, yet I have to refuse, because I would always feel indebted, even if I did make it up... I think I'll go for subulata because of the seeding, so I could donate to the CP world more, but maayybe U. sandersonii, because I LOVE it's flowers!

    If I had to get rid of all my Utrics but one, I would keep subulata (in preference to destroying most of my CP's trying to eradicate it). I really can't see many people leaping with joy at the thought of more U. subulata seed. I still feel guilty having given even 1 person U. subulata, let alone distributing seed of this pernicious weed around the USA. However, even I must admit the yellow flowers are very beautiful - I think they must be produced more often over there than in Britain.

    I've never been particularly impressed by U. subulata. There are any number of nice yellow flowered species that aren't invasive and don't produce cleistogomous flowers.

    There is very little need for seed from utrics - by the time they are established enough to flower you have enough material to send sections to a dozen other people.

    I'll have to go with Tamlin's "must grow them all" mentality, but u.sandersonii is a good one to start with. Not that it may apply to you, but this particular utric gets major "oh my GOSH that's SOOOOOO CUTE!" points from everyone who sees it. I get a good laugh when my mom's church friends think it's a darling plant.
