	At the meeting in TN Ron Mullin said that the early SDB's in OK
bloom down in the fan, but the later ones usually at registered height.
But here and in Ft. Worth, they bloom down in the fan or at fan level,
never above the foliage.  We can get mighty cold here, but I guess it is
the duration of coldness that is the factor.
