Colleen asked about what makes Charleston outstanding.

For me Charleston has an added feature beyond the positive attributes Robin mentions. The near black style arms, serrated and somewhat more prominent than average, provide a backdrop that make the light colored beards "float" in darkness adding dimension and depth to the bloom presentation. Too, the beard is both wide and dense bein' heavily populated with upright beard hairs.

I've experienced no health problems with the cultivar here. It is a first bloom season plant. Stalks, bloom size and quantity have been above average. Increase has been above average here but would likely take a decade or so to reach the level Robin's photo depicts.

Now 'bout hair, the custodian of Charleston here has sparse hair. He sits daily in a statistical regression analysis class among younger fellow students with malleable minds bein' taught via satellite. The poor custodian fellow is incarcerated for the remainder of the summer term. As a point in passin', he allows none of his fellow students to view one of the monitors supportin' a camera that pans his classroom from the rear.  Their education and knowledge acquisition could become seriously impaired in numerous ways were they to observe the shinny glow emanating from the backside of this iris keeper's head..... nor could their doin' so be deemed particularly beneficial to the ego of one particular student havin' mental acuity more suited to a shovel coupled to a psyche too stubborn to accept less than full understandin'... I stay sleepy now.
