Loleta Kenan Powell lives, and has her nursery, about 20 miles north of me
in Princeton, NC. Carolina Gold was a prolific grower for me while I was
in California and it has done even better for me here in North Carolina.
This TB makes wonderful huge increases and I find that I generally have to
divide it every year. I purchased Carolina Fragrance from her a couple of
years ago. It is a beautiful blue and smells heavenly. Walter is
correct in that she has many varieties with name of Carolina in it and they come
in many colors.
If you're interested in her address and phone number, let me know. I
don't think she has an email address though.
AIS, HIPS, RIS Zone 8 -- where it's a
beautiful clear day that may reach 75. Perfect gardening weather.

Was she from one of the North or
South Carolina's? I've considered
getting this one since I
live in SC. Thanks for the bio, I like to hear
hybridizers that are known and not so well known.
