Hi Mike,
           Looks like everybody's leaping first today. The photo attached is
of the plant I saw at Chelsea on the Bowden's stand. If you magnify it a
little, you can clearly read that it says 'Kathryn Lewis' on the label. A
visit to the Bowdens' website found it spelled 'Katherine Lewis' and
described as a 'Halcyon' sport. It's clearly the same plant, so I have to
confess my information on it may out-of-date. Perhaps Roger can set us all
straight if he sees this. The original description had it as the sport of a
seedling of 'Halcyon', but that may have been that wrong as well. There
certainly seems to be a mistake somewhere.
