In the current issue of Washington Gardener magazine (Sept/Oct 2006) there is a ZoneBuster story on Cardiocrinum cathayense. Dan Weil took the photos (including the one posted here) and Jim Dronenburg wrote the piece on this "Giant Lily." We could only use one photo in the article layout and I managed to squeeze one more onto the table of contents page, but he took so many great pics it was a shame we could not use more. If you'd like to view them all, Dan has posted his photos to: www.pbase.com/danielweil/cardiocrinum. This is just one example of the many editorial choices we have to make -- words over images? personal essays verus hard plant info? aim content to beginners or veterans? We'll keep working on that balance on filling our readers' needs and wants the best we can.
