Re: HYB: Substance

I'm curious what criteria are being used to determine substance. Two 
varieties posted as have good substance, grow for me with what I would describe as 
"soft" substance: Louisa's Song and Recherche. I like both of them and have used 
both in crosses, but they are distinctly soft to the touch. Both are laced and 
every laced lavender or blue I have grown has had similar substance. I would 
prefer them to feel leathery or crisp to the touch. What do others think?
