Re: Amorph paeoniifolius

Wow, this is extraordinary.  Considering your description, I now quite
understand that you might find offense in a suggestion that the ID of
A.paeonifoilus might be incorrect.

My apologies for doubting.

I still think that 'somewhat like A.p' should have been 'nothing even
close to A.p', but that's now an irrelevant matter of personal taste.

Hey, since Wilbert asserted that A.p. cannot survive freezing, you might
be able to get a cold-hardy cultivar or variety named after yourself :-)
Just a thought.
