   When I got my 1st 1/2 doz. JI's I did not know any better and just planted them 
anywhere. Most up an died, but one called SEA TITAN did well and has been blooming 
well for me in a damp rock garden out frount near the street. Here in Kansas City 
the only kind of rock I could get for free is lime stone, this thing is in a small 
pocked between 4 large lime stones. Has growen till it is now touching rock on all 4 
sides and will have to be lifted and diveded this year. When I do I will put it some 
where more to it's liking, but thought someone might like to know that this JI seems 
to do OK in and aroung lime. Might be worth looking into as a breeder for lime 
tolerance in the JI's?
