I love this idea!  This could be THE most important thing we've done on this 
list.... EVER.

Do I understand that we are not using the symposium ballot as a guide... but 
just counting off the best of the best that we grow??  This is wonderful!  

Let me think for a minute ...  two that come to mind right away are:

GRAND WALTZ...  a confection of raspberry lace and ruffles that grows and 
blooms no matter what.

VICTORIA FALLS.... yes, I know it falls over.  But it still is a consistent 
performer in this garden - and blue as the sky.  And I had it planted next to 
a fire engine red oriental poppy in my front garden once upon a time and the 
combination would bring strong men to their knees.

OK.... only two.  I still get 23 more.  But I need to think on it.
