Re: SPEC: CULT: reichenbachii

Ian Efford, Canada, sent some starts of two reichenbachii seedlings last
year.  My soil is excessively well-drained, gravelly [light], rich
[strong?] loam.  One clump is threatening to take over the place -
definitely a strong grower here with "tremendous increase" & so far, no
sign of rot.  

I haven't given it huge amounts of lime - just the standard dusting with
ground dolomite, alfalfa pellets and a sprinkling of 6-12-12 with trace

The other clone (with the nicer flowers, of course) hasn't fared as well
and I'm not sure it is still alive.
