The input from Professor J. Lehrer has been invaluable. A trusted friend who embodies a built-in superlative plant encyclopedia. Some of the depth of the QGN experiment is directly due to Jon... It's HIS fault! LOL

Some of the photographs in this web site were taken by Marian Grover, Jonathan Lehrer, Paul H. Schneider, Russell Stafford, North Creek Nurseries, Inc. and Mark Zillis of A to Z Perennials We are using them with their permission. Thank you, all.
Special thanks goes out to Professor Jonathan Lehrer who has been supporter, advisor and our personal "Planta Claus". The depth of plant material at Quackin' Grass is in no small part due to Jonathan's continued input, efforts and packages of plants which arrive like presents under the proverbial Christmas tree in every season! He has been the greatest proponent of Quackin' Grass, humbly set behind the scenes in his self-ascribed task. Thank you, Jon: your knowledge, input and love of interesting plants has meant everything to us - you're the best.
