You're breaking my heart with these lovely AB's. I'd better go
outside with my own mug of coffee. ;)

in 08 and it was still a single rhizome.
It now has 9 rhizomes and the

So ... You used it as a pollen parent and I used it as the pod parent. My
use was because I thought it could set viable seeds, but it took awhile. I
planted 15 seeds that resulted in eight plants. I'd read the pedigree and
thought it should set seeds, so I acquired the plant. Sometime during the
years of growing of it, it was given the Mohr Medal and then I finally got
the pod with the subsequent germination. I may try and use it again because
the seedlings I saw this year had good form, great substance, sturdy stalks
and good growth. Only four bloomed, but there were a lot of good qualities.
How do those traits show up on this one?
