Dear Mike and Anne: Obviously it is I germanica at Durham Academy, for I am
amazed at its earliness, and it was three to four weeks ahead of the pale
blue TB not in bllom beside it. The way it handled freezing was
breathtaking to me.  I have about 8 TB in bloom and SDB at peark. I have
two new arilbred seedlings, but both are lacking in substance. I have a
truly unique Space Ager, color Y/Bv, with huge flounces that go up at 45
degree angle.  Also my OO 24 -8-2 is giving an early bloom, - so I can use
it in corsses. Nice, eh. Ordinarily it is one of the very late ones.
