Re: [IGSROBIN] Zonal info needed

I'm away from my notebooks, but I seem to remember the following "quirks"
about these varieties:

Black Jubilee:  tall grower and not very freely branching (so that if you
don't pinch the new growth out rather aggressively, you wind up with a
strong but gangly plant).  Rather long internodes in regular culture, which
is too bad, because one of the points of the colored-leaved varieties is
being able to see the massed effect of the leaves close together.

Lass O'Gowrie:  rather small-wooded and spiky habit; not very freely

Mr. Henry Cox:  That's the correct name, although generations of growers and
nurserymen have tried to make him a "Mrs."  Also a rather tall grower and
not as freely branching as some other golden tricolors.  Must be fairly
robust, because it has persisted in the general nursery trade (e.g., Home
Depot and non-specialist nurseries) for years and years; if it were a
pantywaist variety, it would have been selected out long ago.
