The subject of fading is apropos at this moment--we have bloom on the
Siberian BUTTER AND SUGAR.  This opens with very pale yellow falls here and
about an hour after the sun hits it, turns to all white.  Yet one sees
catalog photos (Wayside, etc.) which show it with bright yellow falls.  Is
this dependent on climate--could someone from the cooler part of the
country report?

Can anyone fill us in on progress toward REAL yellow Siberians?
