Lizzie - I will add lysi-wotsit to my list.
Verdun - keep meaning to respond to a question you asked earlier in the week. I grow gallardias - bought a few from GC last year as their flowers caught my eye. They have come through the winter fine and are about to flower now.
however, there was a post on here a couple of months ago from someone who was having trouble with them, and echinaceas and rudbeckias, and questioning whether prairie plants really work in our climate.
so my verdict is good, but others disagree
