It is a wonderfull alpine but hellish to grow. There was a recent article in the AGS bulletin by Mike Brown on its cultivation.He grows it to perfection

Hi Tony, since March, Hillkeep has taken time out and only doing orders for minimum 350$.
I tried emailing the guy who posted in the SRGC forum but the mail bounced.
I am not a member of AGS)-:

What a pretty find. Hillkeep is the only place I saw it too. Must be somewhere. Maybe as the season progresses a little, it will show up in a catalog. You got me looking now.

This gentleman grows the plant with no apparant
problem.

Perhaps you could coax seeds from him?
Fresh seed is best.

Hi Corinne, first thing I did was email him but it bounced.
The posting was 2003 so not really surprising.

MaggiePie,

Sorry about that! It seems like yesterday...

I will check my fridge to see if I have any seeds left.

Maggie Pie,

Sorry, no seed here.

Paraquilegia anemonoides is sometimes listed as
P. grandiflora.

Hans, I am looking for seed rather than a plant and this nursery doesn't do mail orders.
I am wondering why something so beautiful is so hard to find, perhaps it is because it has to be hand pollinated to produce seed.

perhaps it is so hard to find because it (almost)always dies before it flowers and if you get one to flower it is not self fertile.

For years the only plants in cultivation were at Branklyn garden in Perth from the original Ludlow and Sherrif collection. Latterley it has been collected many times because under its various names anemonoides,grandiflora,microphylla, it is a common plant across the himalayas and is seen by lots of people on plant holidays

I think perhaps I should look for something more user friendly.
Thanks for the input Tony.

They had them at GN last time I looked at their list Loretta.
Have you grown them?
It does look like a beautiful plant.

Glaucidium is a wonderful woodlander which is easy although slow.It comes in a nice mauve form or in white. It is slow from seed but usually germinates well and the only real problem is slugs which can eat of the emerging crowns so protection is essential

How slow is slow Tony?
I'm getting a bit long in the tooth for really long term plants:-)
In Oz I planted a firewheel tree in my garden and it took 16 years to flower but what an amazing sight it was when it finally did .

I grew them from seed once but they all damped off. I was so excited to see them germinate so it was deflating watching them slowly rot. So I picked one up from Evermay Nursery when I ordered the A. jonesii. It came with a wilting leaf and all of them wilted in turn. It is still alive though and has a bud ready for next spring. You might get a better sized plant from Seneca Hill Perennials.
I just mentioned Glaucidium because the flowers on Paraquilegia reminded me of them. But it is a larger plant in size and texture.
I'm glad you said it was easy, Tony. I have hope for that one.

I would think about five years to flower but could be shorter. Give it a go, my friend who is 86 says he has stopped sowing tree seeds and I told him not to be so pessimistic.

I live in Canada Loretta , the cost would be prohibitive even if they actually send to Canada.

Well, it seems I could join the SRGC and apply for a small lots of seed permit, request the seed on the next exchange and hope for the best. Sounds a little expensive, doesn't it?
