Thanks for linkin' Aaron Cook's letter, maeve... Seems that we in the Azalea Society have at least gotten the Arboretum to put a hold on their plans to destroy the collection and thr boxwood folks have been equally up to the task...

And the excuse that the folks at the Arboretum came up with for destroying them have been shown to be "silly"... I mean, I never heard of anyone complaining that the collection was so good that it was, ahhhh, attracting visitors??? Duhhhhhh... Isn't that what folks want???

Oh well, we have dodged this bullet for now and hopefully saner heads will prevail over the long run... I mean, these azaleas go way the heck back to the 40s...
