two Regals were hybridized by my dad, Carlos Moore,but I don't know the
date. The  scented was apparently also my dad's, but I'd like additional
documentation, if it exists. As my parents knew the Bode's well, I'm
assuming these plants would have been carried by the m. Maybe the info
is on other nursery catalogs from that period. Any info would be
appreciated. Thanks. Ed Olson-Moore h20wrx@aol.com >>
