The Lankows were also at the Siberian and species convention and Carla
is doing work with species among other things these days - they had
two guest plants, ARCTIC REBLOOMER '94, SPEC I. setosa and `Blue
Rose', SPE I. gracilipes.
Carla gave a short talk during the Fri. night program and they have
or had a terrible time with a fungi (?) or bacterial (?) disease in
their soil - where is Jim Wilson or someone who took notes?
We had lunch together on Sat. and we very briefly discussed it - BUT
the good news is, it is pretty much gone and any cultivars that they
would sell are healthy.
