Positive tabasco On May 29, 2007, tabasco from Cincinnati (Anderson Twp), OH (Zone 6a) wrote:

We have had Luxor Gold in our mixed border for three years. It has been slow to establish but now that it is in bloom it is a real traffic stopper. Its large and showy blooms pair well with early coreopsis and blue salvias and makes a bright and cheery iris for the mixed border.
