JIM: MATRIX ordinarily has very big, very wide flowers of good substance.
The coloring was not outstanding. I chose it from some two or three dozen
selected seedlings of Earl Hall, as the only one to introduce. It reblooms
rather on the late side here. It is a splendid parent. Whatever happened,
your bloom was atypical. Better luck next year, if you keep it. It was good
to hear your news, and I congratulate you on NOT FOLLOWING YOUR NEIGHBOR'S
ADVICE. LLOYD ZURBRIGG, DURHAM, N>C> Zone 8.
