does anyone here remember the comic strip 'Bloom County'? i'd like a secluded area, maybe 15'x15' or less with trees on at least one side and bordered by rocks all around. the primary use would be pet cemetery, though not creepy at all. i really want to be able to knee down, facing the sun and fall backwards and watch the explosion of puffs rise into the sky... there are a few cultivars, all for edibility. i want colors - not the flowers, but the pappus. wouldn't it be nice to have them in green and yellow, too? wikipedia talks about hundreds of microspecies. so, any thoughts?
