Re: SPEC: I. balkana source? BALKAN GLACIER

From: "Walter Moores" <wmoores@watervalley.net>

	Linda, Hager's BALKAN GLACIER (balkana background) is one of Ben's 
best growing and most beautiful works I wish I could get back.  I 
tried for years to get something from it.  Each bloom would be tagged 
with a different colored tag, and since it was so well branched, the 
stalk would eventually look like a Christmas tree after the flowers 
folded.  No pod was ever produced, and in my garden, it never had any 
pollen.  If you use balkana, you might produce a beautiful dud like 
B G.!  Good luck!
