I have noticed in my garden that the reds and blacks are more temperamental AS 
A GROUP.  There are always exceptions but, they are more likely to water spot, do 
not hold up the the heat and wind as well, and this year with the self induced 
Round Up rot they seem to have taken it harder and are recuperating slower.  
Since these are my two favorite color classes for selfs we grow quite a few and 
the improvement of these color classes is the hybridizing goal for my husband.
