Lloyd -- Thanks for chiming in on this. You may or may not recall our
lunch session of a couple of years ago at the Region 4 meeting in
Leesburg, VA. I asked a lot of questions during that lunch, and perhaps
didn't emphasize that my breeding was especially of recessive amoenas. I
appreciated your advice on breeding in general.
Your mentioning of Barry Blyth's "working the recessive amoenas" may
explain why certain of his cultivars have worked so well with my
recessive amoenas. I am looking forward to talking with him at our
upcoming Region 4 meeting this spring. Are you planning to be there?
