Good Evening

I was just checking the internet. I saw where you list that Rosey Carpet pp13965 has been known to survive in Conway, Arkansas72034. You might recall I own the Patent on this one. My lawyer that did the patent work lives in Fayetteville Arkansas. Fayetteville is in the NW Corner of Arkansas and is in plant zone 6. She, my attorney, has several Rosey Carpet, pp13965 plants in her yard. They have been there for 4 years and have survived very nicely. I think you can very safely advertise they grow well in NW Arkansas on your web site or similar area.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Conway, Arkansas
Spring Valley, California
