The x. intermedia clones are everywhere, but I'm utterly unable to find any seedlings of straight mollis. Anyone know of any sources? Or am I stuck with ordering seed?
The hybrid selections are thought to be better. H. mollis varies from seed, buying named clones has been recommended for some time.
Rarefind Nursery has them. I bought a Wisley Supreme from them about a month ago. It looked beautiful, but the first thunderstorm we had, with 50mph wind gusts, and it split right in the middle of the trunk, at one of the branches.
I couldn't believe it. None of my other shrubs or trees were even remotely affected by the storm.
But anyway, Rarefind has 3 of the Mollis': Early Bright, which is sold out, Wisley Supreme, and Gold Edge.
