    Wow, Eric - another great find for you. I'm glad you had your camera so we could all see. Those sure have great color on them.

    Great find and becoming so rare these days. Nothing as lovely as finding a patch of these in the woods. Several of my friends and I check on some nice colonies of these every year and keep their location secret. Unfortunately some gardeners think they can dig them up and move them to their gardens only to end up killing them. Thanks for sharing your find.
