I see new colors and patterns, and a gradual improvement of vigor, more
stalks per rhizome, stronger stalks, and better substance in older colors
and patterns. Am I imagining this? As everyone says, there are a lot of out
of region duds along the way.
Look at JESSE'S SONG - its stalks don't like the repeated cold shocks in my
frost pocket, but my goodness, talk about vigor in a plicata. It grows
circles around STEPPING OUT.
