Re: An impromptu swap....A very nice surprise

Brookside is definitely better and more reliable than Johnson's Blue.  It is
often listed in catalogues specifically to replace disappointing JBs.

Marge, I have G. 'Victor Reiter' from which 'Midnight Reiter' was selected.
VR is not as dark as MR, but seedling volunteers I've gotten from it are
darker.  VR and its offspring are strong for me.
