Re: HYB: Plume d'Or? - wide falls

Looks like PLUME D'OR (Blyth 94) might be a/the source of superwide
falls in some of the newer Blyth intros.  It blooms ML, a plus for me
since that would possibly help it avoid the chronic late spring
freezes.  And it's out of yellow/pink background instead of dark
blue/purple like some of the others we've talked about.

I wonder if it would be possible to keep it alive here though.  Keith
Keppel listed it in his catalog a few years ago, but the only place I
found it listed (online Google search) is Willow Bend Farm in Colorado.

Have any of you tried to grow it?

Is spring bloom season over in Oz yet?  Wonder if any of the Blyth
hybridizers would have time to tell us about wide falls in their
breeding lines.

Great day for charting pedigrees with cold rain/sleet/freezing rain in
the forecast...  ugh.
