 Kevin Vaughn, in the steamy delta in Miss., when last I knew grew I
pseudacorus, a 'white' pseud, phil edinger, roy davison, f2 orange
((((sorry Mark, it is f2,I miss typed previously)))) the three of which
are children/grandchildren of holden clough, which he also grows. 
Perhaps there are more pseuds and pseud crosses that he grew, but all of
these that I remember did fairly well in a slightly sunken, slightly
shady portion of his back yard.
