> I suspect you don't grow Betty Cooper :-)

Your suspicions are correct.  I like the spurias a lot.  Their 
drawbacks are the time it takes to get them established and their 
late bloom habits.  The former reason makes me hesitate because I 
don't know long term whether the latter will be too big a drawback 
in the end.  So I have a very few plants.  Every year the clumps get 
better and I love the foliage (wish it would stay evergreen all 
summer), but heat, wind and insects are plentiful when the bloom and 
all have taken their toll when they try to bloom.  They sure seem to 
be happy on the edge of the hill between the outcropping of rocks.
