Thanks for info on native VA species info source, Debbie. Don't give up hope
on BLACK GAMECOCK, as it tends to be a very late bloomer, often with the
Japanese here. It has done fairly well for me in half day shade...but of
course blooms even more when in full sun. It is one of my favorite
Louisianas....Lily Ponds, the acquatic nursery, sells it for $17.00+ a
rhizome. You must have a small fortune in your garden! LOL Clarence Mahan
