It's turning out to be another "super doer", Lucy ! Elfin Shadows has been a real good one, but I think Twilight Calm is better Shrug! .I *suppose* that being "bred" in YOUR cold selected (naturally !) the seedlings that did the best, there.......and they do the best HERE , in MY "cold climate" ! I also think that the MTB's (and the SDB's, too) are a little "closer to the original species", than the TB's are (they have been crossed , and re crossed, SO many times, over SO many years, that , basically, they are all "related" Shrug! )....and I think that "closeness to species" translates to a stronger plant, with a higher dose of "hybrid vigor"......I suppose, that if, and when, the medians become more popular, and time marches on.....their blood lines will also become somewhat 'weaker through dilution" Shrug! .
Anyway....ya' did good !
