Are they necessarily wimpy? The older TB MOCAMBO goes dormant in the
summer here every year. Even this year with all the rain, the foliage
nearly completely died away. It really is a pretty strong grower here,
just goes dormant after bloom and doesn't come back to life until
fall. That's relatively common among ABs, but unusual in TBs. When
conditions are really bad, VANITY does the same thing. So
unfortunately I've seen VANITY do it a lot.
