Do you ever get the feeling you have just grown too many things? My attention was drawn to Tetradium
and T. ruticarpum, a large shrub from China, crossed my path and followed me home.
Unfortunately, I don't remember a single thing about it. I have the picture to demonstrate that it was in
the garden (the leaves with it are Impatiens cymbifera growing by my back door). I have a note
in my accessions list confirming when and where I bought it, but that is as much as I know. Either it
is sitting in the Hedychium house somewhere and I haven't noticed it, or I planted it somewhere and have
forgotten it. In either case it will turn up again eventually.
