Re: TB: CULT: Dykes medal winners


Carol Ann,

I grow BABBLING BROOK and RAMSESES and find that they are so vigorous
that they need to be divided every two years , if I don't divide them,
they don't bloom well.  

I bought DEBBY RAIRDON , RED DOUGLAS, RIPPLING WATERS , GREAT LAKES,
WABASH, and BLUE RYTHEM and hope they grow as well.
