Re: fulvas (was LAs in NO)

From: celia storey <storey@aristotle.net>

Patrick O'Connor asked if the fulvas in Arkansas are significantly
different than those in LA. I didn't know, but promised to ask Tom Dillard
what he thought.

He says, "The I. fulvas I have seen in central Arkansas are very much like
the fulvas
I've seen from Louisiana.  But, the ones I've seen hereabouts are usually
in shady areas, so the flowers are probably smaller than they would be if
in the sun."

Someone else asked if our fulvas are the red kind or the yellow kind. That
I can answer. We have both growing wild around the state. The patch near
Pinnacle are reds. Frank Chowning collected a famous yellow, MARVELL GOLD,
near Marvell, Arkansas in the '30s.

I believe we have a piece of MG planted at Alice Holeman's garden for the
SLI tour -- but I have a famously inaccurate memory, so don't hold me to

Little Rock, Arkansas, USDA Zone 7b
257 feet above sea level,
average rainfall about 50 inches (more than 60" in '97)
average relative humidity (at 6 a.m.) 84%.
moderate winters, hot summers ... but lots of seesaw action in all seasons
