I grow Superstition and would give long shot odds that you do not have
Superstition especially since it is a Wal Mart acquisition. I am still
trying to get a good photograph of Superstition. One that is not a black
blob on a blurry background.

> Hi Everyone:

> This thing has been growing for a few years, and is 12-18" high. It

> It really looks more like an SDB.
