coonties, I got the seed that this batch came from years ago in Florida, in some state park I cant remember exactly which but it was the one where billy bowlegs holed up after killing some gringos, these are the last of them, I will plant these in the new garden, The  man I was with was a history buff and he died a couple of months back!! he was all excited about getting to go, we had been to ft. myers and were on our way back to Tampa.. what a trip, I bought 10 truckloads of queens from a man who didnt even own them, Luc denomee and Browns nursery and landscaping, what a wild introduction to the nursery business.
