  GIGOLO and the yellow ground progeny from it were not killed by rot here.  In
fact, G is still alive in my back forty..  The problem with it is 
that it starts growth too early in the spring and gets cut back by a 
late freeze.  Once in five years G will have a successful bloom 
season.  It's going out soon.

   FANCY WOMAN, luminata/plic, falls in the same category.  It is 
even earlier to attempt bloom than GIGOLO and gets frozen every year 
and then recovers and makes beautiful summer foliage, only to get cut 
back again in the early spring.  It has never bloomed here, and I 
chunked it this spring.
