For the professional horticulturist, plant mutations are treasures. The New York Times recently caught up with Richard Jaynes of the Broken Arrow nursery in Connecticut, where he grows over 65% of the plants he sells, many of them oddities he himself has propagated from findings in the wild. And after 65 years, he’s been able to collect and breed some fascinating specimens.
Have a look; even if Mr. Jaynes’ rarities are a bit difficult to find, his suggestions for winter beauties are spot on. —MN
