Mellinger's 1977 Garden catalog just arrived this week with listings for
Sauromatum guttatum, Amorphophallus bulbifer, Sarracenia purpurea,
several callas (no species listed), Asarum candense, and Arisaema
triphyllum. (There were also a number of gingers for those who follow
that sort of thing .) None were at the outrageous prices of Wayside,
e.g. A. triphyllum and A. candense were $5.75 each and the S. gutattum
was $3.50.
