Dear Linda: Did you expect me to reply?? I have raised seedlings from
HARVEST OF MEMORIES, the only CORN HARVEST seedling I ever registered. It
is best crossed with rather wide parents, but of itself is often a
contender for Queen at the Fall Shows, - and indeed won again this year at
the Chesapeake & Potomac Fall Show this year, placing ahead of CLARENCE.
The fall stalks have simply tremendous branching! My best thing from it
thus far is SUNNY DISPOSITION, which I ought to have mentioned in an
earlier reply. This one produces clumps of bloom in the fall. perhaps
because its other parent is IMMORTALITY, and I highly recommend it to you.
Its branching is good, (more like H of M than Imm.) Again I recommend a
wide parent in crossing to Sunny D., though it is pretty good itself.
