AB: Cultivars for the East

Phyllis Soine reported bloom on KHYBER PASS and buds on ESTHER THE QUEEN, and

:  Are there other arilbreds that are vigorous enough to grow in hot, humid 
:  Richmond, Virginia?

The conventional wisdom is that the quarterbreds are more reliable in hot, humid
climates.  The late Cope Goodwin sent me a picture of OPALS FOR ETHEL grown in
Georgia, which was more impressive than in its home garden -- and I once posted
a list  of the arilbreds that grew well enough for him that he offered surplus
through the ASI plant sale.  

But both KYBER PASS and ESTHER THE QUEEN are halfbreds and if you can grow them,
there are many others that will probably perform as well for you.  EQ was a
breakthrough in gardenability.  She originated in Oklahoma, where some summers
are hot and dry while others are hot and very humid.   Fortunately, she has
passed on her excellent growth habits to many of her descendants.
