I should have stated recent blacks that are what I call 'soot black.' None of
of recent vintage do well here, and when BEFORE THE STORM passed from
the garden, I didn't bother to replace it because it was such a
struggle keeping it going. Its children are struggling now.
Yes, SUPERSTITION is still a dandy, but it is not as black as the soot blacks.

Maybe I should order BYE BYE BLACKBIRD from you.
Why can't blacks grow like LET'S BOOGIE OR BRAZILIAN HOLIDAY?
