Re: Fire and Ice vs Loyalist

I have no opinion on the plants, and don't know if they are the same or
different, but if I was doing a study of them, I would not do it in containers.
There are too many variables and I can show you dozens of places in our growing
area where there are significant differences between two plants of the same
variety growing next to each other in containers.
