Re: HYB: Ultimate SA--gross, man.

<< Just one reaction: UGH! >>

This is the part that I thought sounded particularly hurl-worthy:

 <<someday the flounces possibly becoming so large that they form a into a 
flower with beards>>

Sounds like those loathsome proliferations one sees on the old roses when a 
secondary flower develops in the center of a bloom, generally deformed and 
generally hanging from a ghastly little unbilicus. This is not often 
considered attractive even by those with a taste for freakish stuff. I like a 
fine SA, but I think that simply because a potentiality exists in the gene 
pool doesn't invariably make it something one wants to see around the garden.
