Works great here.  I spray half-strength in spring, quarter strength about
once a month afterwards, until mid-August.  No control group, but seems
to help resistance to leaf spot through general plant health.

Currently tickled by a new personal record in length of time to sprout.
>From a pod of 17 seeds of Pond Lily X Again And Again from the 07 seed
crop, chilling since 8/10/07, 12 sprouted from 10/31/07 to 3/19/08.  One
rotted.  Have had 4 sitting in the crisper ever since.  Left them at room
temperature for 4 days starting 1/1/09, then back in the fridge.  Today
2 of the 4 had sprouted.  That's nineteen months.
