CULT: diploids

I said in the "Katrina" post I hadn't lost a single diploid.

That's not quite so--Pink Ruffles has been rescued with two tiny sprigs
about the size of month-old seedlings from a fairly sizeable clump this
spring....and a thin-stemmed *pallida* type sent me by a friend from
Tacoma--found growing along an alley there--is a total wipe-out, I think.  I
haven't dug it completely to see if any solid rhizomes persist.  I didn't
spot any yesterday.

Most of the others are practically untouched by weather ills.  Some have
lost much foliage, but rhizomes are sound and sprouts are showing.
