     SIX PACK did the same thing for me when I had it when I lived in
Kentucky.  I lived in Lexington, and SIX PACK was hybridized near
Cynthiana, which was about a 45 mile drive, a distance that included having
to drive across Lexington itself.  I figure that the performance you had is
quite normal.  Try not to let the dog get it this time.  An established
clump is awesome in bloom.
