"Does anyone know if OLYMPIAD is a good grower in the NorthEast?"

Three-quarters of OLYMPIAD's ancestry is MARY FRANCES.  I would 
expect you would have similar growability between the two.  No one 
complains about MF's growth habits for sure.  

I find the flush of color in the heart of Olympiad's flower of 
considerable interest.  A number of its offspring and grandchildren 
retain the characteristic, TIMESCAPE only one of them, and the more 
recent LAVENDER PARK has a description suggesting the same pattern.

These would be interesting to cross with those having a similar 
pattern from HONKY TONK BLUES derivation.  I wonder if the two have 
the same genetics?  Does anyone know of such crosses or have any 
opinions on the genetics involved?  I intend to try a few.
