I have had reasonable success with BEVERLY SILLS, having grown it
continuously without having to replace it for 17 years, though it does not
equal either ANNA BELLE BABSON or VANITY in vigor. However, during the past
two relatively mild and open winters, when we have not enjoyed our usual
reliable snow cover, BS has suffered considerably, and did not even bloom
on an established clump this past spring.
