Note: your rating buttons do not record on a touch-screen telephone, but my experience was positive. I bred from my own seeds for two or three years, because Henry Fields no longer carries it, and despite being an F1, it bred true. It endured our Lake Hell summers and bore prolifically, but one cold winter's night, the weatherman lied, and I lost it all. Help!
