Sorry, Kathy, that wasn't intended personally. My post was a response to
Sharon's, which was in turn a response to a post about which varieties
produce "freak" blooms and why hybridizers let them on the market. My

an agreement with Sharon's observation that weather--rather than cultivar--
is the principal factor in this phenomenon.

Trust me, no attack was intended.
