The first one registered was Valleries vanity, and the second was
Peridot.  There is reason to believe that these all came from the same
TC diveation in Holland in the early eighties.  What makes (I hope)
Peridot unique, it that we took the time during the early stages of it's
devlopment , to select from and propigate the fastest growing plant I
had.  In my garden Peridot devlopes faster than any of the others.( I
have most of them)  I will be intrested in any observations , pro or
con, on this, as it is a procedure I am using in devlopment of many of
my hybrids.
