[PHOTO] TB:Trillion Again

Hi Linda and talkers,

I just had to make a few more comments about Trillion.
I was lucky enough to win Trillion in a raffle several
years ago. Elaine Bessette donated it to the raffle
more or less so it would be guested in our area. So I
thought I should say a few words about it to promote
Elaine's baby.

Trillion grows very well for me, blooms every year and
has husky stalks that don't fall over. Bud count is
7-9 (I've had 10 a couple of times) and as Linda said,
it is very consistent with it's horns. I have not yet
seen a flower without them. Light fragrance. Puts on
increases later in the season. Trillion is also
fertile both ways.

I took Linda's pic and lightened it up a bit and made
it a bit sharper. Hope you don't mind my taking
liberties, Linda.

Anyway, just my two cents.
