Hi Donald,

Here's the thing about that one. It was given to me as 'Thornbird' and while it resembles it, it looks considerably different from the way I've known it over the years. So, BD might be something to look into, because its mother is none other than 'Thornbird'. For all I know, it could have gone to seed in my friends garden and I might be growing a half sibling to BD.

It's funny you mention that one photo. A friend mentioned it in an email that I still need to respond to (I'm going to, if you see this :), there's just a lot more to cover in that message than here).

Thanks for the suggestion. If nothing else, you've pointed out another variety for the several thousand variety long (no joke) wishlist.
