J: Do you work in the garden center? Ok. Do you have any Narcissus?
J: No, Narcissus.
S: Narsis? I've never heard of it. Turns to mouthbreather: How about you?
M: blank look and shrug
The conversation continued just as futilely but I wandered off. We were about to go to Anderson's in frustration, since at least the nursery staff are conversant with common exotic plants when we remembered that our pocketbooks prefer Home Despot.
We decided on Leptospermum scoparium "Crimson Glory" ( Crimson Glory Tea Tree ) that Juli wanted after finding the particulars of the three different selections offered on our smart phones.
Right next to the Leptospermum were 20 or more Ceanothus "Yankee Point" favorably priced at 5.98 for a 1 gal! Hmm what's this California native plant doing at HD?
Should I be looking for signs of the apocalypse or what?
We took a last crack at Narcissus with another nursery staff member who at least knew where the bulbs were located, but failed, and left.
