Good luck finding the alder mulch, though. There just aren't a whole lot of alders around to mulch. I've called all the landscapers I could find, and nobody knows anything about hardwood mulch. It's all conifer, which supposedly is ok according to the books, but I sure haven't had any luck with it.
If you look at a map of gardening zones, all of the hotspots for cyans etc are zone 4 or 5. Who knows; maybe the difference between 4, 5 and 6 is just enough on average?
I found semilanceatas a long time ago in a field north of beaverton, but we got chased off by a pissy old farmer shooting his shotgun over our head. We scored big, but never went back.
