Re: TB: Edith Wolford or Jurassic Park (or something else)?


Mike , I'm not coastal but I do grow both . Edith is a very slow grower and
a poor performer for bloom  but when she does its beautiful. I've had
Jurassic for  several years and it has bloomed each and every year and in my
eyes is also a beauty.
