Sinningia and Friends
On Day 1 of the sales, I gathered up my two boxes of sales plants and headed over to check out: who do I find will be tallying up my purchases? Alan and Debra LaVergne! Their Sinningia and Friends website (including tuber descriptions and pictures) is a fantastic resource. For example, I was just thinking - as a result of Peter Shalit's presentation during the GHA meeting on tri-species hybridizing - that it would be nice to have a table showing which Sinningia species have been successfully crossed. Well... guess what I found on Alan LaVergne's website? Yes, that's right. Annotated tables with just such info. The more I learn about Sinningias, the more the site seems to have. Highly recommended reading.
