Re: Reg 2 Symposium Cooley's and hybridizing.
Rick Ernst, grandson of Rholin Cooley, has been hybridizing for several years
now. AFTERNOON DELIGHT may be the best known of his introductions. SMILING
GOLD does particularly well in our area of N. Carolina, even tho' it has
RINGO as one grandparent. RINGO, by the way, did moderately well in the
hills of Virginia. Here we have a very open winter, and undoubtedly some
varieties prefer to get snowed in, and go dormant. Lloyd Zurbrigg, Durham NC
