	I don't know much about the man either.  To his credit, also is one of the
most intense deep violet LA's ever.  MENTIDA  is from SIGNA seed 
and was introduced way back in 1981.

	KENTUCKY CAJUN, a tetraploid LA, is out of MENTIDA and 
was introduced in 1995.  KC does best in the coldest part of the 
garden, and is one of the prettiest flowers in the tet group.  It won a 
blue ribbon at the spring show in Memphis.

	I have also read that Mr. Norris converted some of his candy 
lilies to tets via colchicine treatments and offered seeds to SIGNA 
last year.  I have some of the plants, but they have not bloomed yet 
but are growing robustly in spite of the continuous 105o heat wave 
we've had for the past two weeks.

	So, Mr. Norris dabbles in a lot of plant material it appears.

	Good credentials, I think.
