Yes, I have grown several of Les's arilbreds (even got to know Les a little
in my early years as an AIS member in Utah). They grow and bloom well here
in their native state and I don't recall any rot problems with them. The
arilbreds I find most attractive, however, are the ones with bold signals
and a marked tendency towards species form. I have recently acquired some
of Hager's and Shockey's introductions, which seem to be doing well so far.
I am growing most of my arilbreds in the same bed with TB's - not
intermingled, but in separate blocks on the edge of the planted area where
I can limit the water they get in the summer.
