Lyn....I doubt Pieris would be hardy in Edmonton, but there are compact versions available, Our 'Dorothy Wycoff' is one.

I would feel privileged to walk in Sharon's gardens...for the past ten years, as long as I have "known" her.

puffpuffkaffkaff Yes, Host K, I am kinda late delivering my Ps. But then, haven't finished my Q-Quilt either. Can't believe that when Soup started, I thought 3 days per letter was too much time. hardy-har-har

Tante, you'd need to borrow Inge's solar powered golf cart to do tour of Sharon's place, methinks. ;o} Mighty impressive rockery design, Abby! Gawjus setting and water feature!
