Thank you for that explanation, Donald.  I assumed most quarterbreds 
would behave like beardeds and retain their summer growth.  At least that 
seems to be the case with the few I have managed to keep alive here - 
except, of course, JoO.

Then it's a darn good thing I dug and divided it this year!  The clump 
was very crowded.

Thanks.  I'll keep that in mind.  What I'd really like to try are a few 
RBs and RB-s.  My understanding is that they should be able to handle 
cold country reasonably well.

Ah well.  More for the wish list.
