	I am intrigued by this also and I am watching carefully my new 
	bearded rhizomes...they have *all* increased - barring none and 
	the worst ones (so far) in our frost climate are the SDB's! I think
	I have lost one GRAPESICLE rhizome (I had three, so no problem).

	Of course, the MDB's are doing well and especially the IB's 
	and the TB's....The venerable BABY BLESSED (SDB rebloomer) had 
	some fungus in two spots and I sat down and laughed since almost
	everyone who grows this raves about it. I also clipped the offending
	material. No other rhizome has any problems except that the SDB's are
	not doing well in the cold.

	The IB's are the biggest surprise but maybe not since they have some
	pumilla background like the SDB's....CANDY FLOSS (Keppel) is 
	increasing more since the cold weather arrived. 

	Just my musings on a cold October day,
