     When I lived in Lexington, KY, Blackberry Lilies usually reached about
30" tall.  It is interesting to see them get so tall here.  Both winters I
have been here, they did not go totally dormant.  I wonder if that has
something to do with it?

     I find it odd that the pollinating insects have not shown interest in
them.  Even butterflies get on them here.
