This is not to comment on Oregon Exotics' business practices, because I've never done business with them.  However, they still are in business; I received a catalog from them a couple of months ago. -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn. (USDA Zone 4b)

I requested a catalogue from Oregon Exotics on-line several years ago for
$5.  My credit card was accepted, I got the bill, and still haven't seen the
catalogue in spite of e-mails and phone messages.  I thought about going to
the better business bureau in OR but figured I'd spend more than $5 trying
to recover the dough.  Caveat emptor!  It's too bad.  I was interested in
their Snow-kist citrus to try under an unheated cover here.  I'm not aware
of anyone else who carries that item, although perhaps there's a lesson in
that too;-)

> Is Oregon Exotics still in business?  When I last ordered from them some
years ago, they messed up the order so badly, and then were so impossible to
get ANY response from, I sort of assumed that they were on their way out.

both A. arguta and A. kolomitka to be sure that the sender/grower knows
which is which.  I bought mine from Oregon Exotics.
