5) rhizomes is freezed
JUAN VALDEZ

I can note interesting effect:
Good rhizome from Oregon, planted in early september, winters well, blooms
spring, forms good clump and freezes out completely next winter. It was
DISTANT ROADS last year and JUAN VALDEZ now. Ripe rhizome from South
winters better than insufficiently ripe from North.
