Growing from seed? Finding C. brachytricha seeds

16 years ago

I would like to grow Calamagrostis brachytricha in a container next year and was thinking I would start some from seed. But I can't find a source. I looked up some of the companies listed in the back of Darke's book, but they don't seem to carry these. If anyone knows a source, please let me know.

Others: I ordered Lagurus Ovatus seeds on E-Bay. Seedman has Schizachyrium scoparium 'Blaze,' which I'd like to try (if I can figure out where to put some in my yard!). He also has Pennisetum orientale, which I might try in a container. Oh, and I'm going to grow some Chasmanthium latifolium from my own plant.

When do I sow my seeds? I know the Lagurus Ovatus shouldn't be started until early spring, but what about the others? Should I winter sow them?

Thank you in advance.
