Leroy--Dorothea K. Williamson is perfectly hardy and vigorous here in
upstate NY, but she is the only one I have grown.  

Re: germination--I have read that if you can obtain LA seed fresh from the
pod, it is best to plant immediately, before it even dries out completely.
I don't remember the source....but this has stuck in my mind.  Have no
experience with it myself.
