Sometimes, Jim, "new and improved" is just some exciting find. I remember how often Alan Armitage told the story of spotting 'Homestead Purple' Verbena by the side of the road, and he's always generous with cuttings of whatever he's got in the garden. He's like a kid in a candy store as he bounces from plant to plant. Mike Dirr is the same.
