I am not debating what Linda experiences, but would only add this. Here
in CA where I am, we do not get enough cold and the dwarf varieties
bloon down in the fans below their registered height. Maybe it is a
different process going on. 

I have to say that I am with Abe and Gerry on the Humore issue. My
observation, which I heard repeated by others, was that those gardens
that used Humore the most heavily had the most signs of rot and other
disease. My opinion is that it has too much nitrogen and the foliage was
over grown and got caught in cold snaps.
