Re: Stabilizing Sports--Help us Lu Treadway.
Hi Mr H.
My info unfortunately came from all and sundry without any censoring unless
I knew something was definitely wrong, or an expert did.
It is now based in my wonderful pocket Psion and
if a plant has a cream margin as does H. Variegated (in the UK) then "CM" is
all it gets by way of data. (after all there are 4187 entries!). I am very
happy to post to you all such scribblings if you feel they might help. By
the way my data is PZ..........pre Zilis!
