I question the hardiness of tet. La's in Zones 7/8. Every year
they get zapped in my bog and do not bloom. Somebody said they prefer
upland growing conditions and not bogs. I posted this message once before
but nobody responded.
Again, do tets. resent bogs and prefer drier locales?
Marie Caillet just sent me one of the Mertzweiller interploidy
seedlings. Should it be planted in the bog or in a drier bed?
