I planted a very small and weak rhizome in July '94....almost lost
it but I watered it every chance I got - sometimes four (yeah) times
a day....it cam back in time to be mulched for our Zone 3 winter -
-40 degrees F.......
Last summer it did okay but didn't clump well - three bloomstalks -
I thought it was a loser in my garden...BUT
Enter '96 and it just took off - wonderful clump - tons (literally)
of buds......I have no Siberians blooming yet but any day now -
ILLINI ENCORE has two partially opened buds.....
I will report more when B & S's buds bloom....the real test!
