April 9, 2011 at the U.S. National Arboretum

A short walk outside on the day of our April meeting came with rewards in the form of may apples (Podophyllum - very underrated, imo) and Acer palmatum flowers.

From the meeting itself, some people went home with some rhizomes of a brand new (and I mean very very new) Seemannia hybrid - you never know what will show up on the raffle table.

The next meeting is Saturday, May 14, 2011.  Jim Roberts will talk about his recent trip to China (and gesneriads, of course).
