Bill, I grew this one too for years!!!  Here, in my climate, it did super 
too.  Excellent growth habits and vigorous increase.  One of the first ones 
to have bloomed every Spring. No rot - ever here either.

I used it in a couple of crosses, then got rid of it to help make room for 
it's kids.  hmmm......... Maybe I shouldn't have gotten rid of it. It's only 
about a 10 minute drive from my house - - should I want it back though.

I'm glad you posted that!! :-)
