Re: Wabash

Certainly she could, and she did not indicate in her message any 
doubt as to Wabash's claim to be a TB.

However, the size thing is not as absurd as it, at first reading, 
appears. Wabash is a smallish flower, as TBs go. Ginny and Don Spoon, 
Winterberry Gardens, listed Wabash in their catalog as an MTB, based 
on their evaluation, in their garden, of Wabash's flower and stalk 
size and stalk height. I looked at where they were growing Wabash and 
in the semi-shade it tended to produce small flowers and a taller 
than normal stalk, a bit out of class for MTBs but not utterly beyond 
the pale.
