Trial: Perennial

Years Trialed: 2003, 2004

Good Qualities

Year 1

Plants were in good shape on arrival but small and late.


Year 1

Too small flower for commercial value; Aphids; Plants were not shipped until Aug.

Year 2

Small fragile plants grown in pots and wintered in cold frame, ‘Chadds Ford’ died during the winter (Zone 5); This plant is native for me, I think that a large part of my problem was that the plants were not robust on arrival, I would try it again; Shipped to us late Aug 2003, planted out 10/13/03.


Year 1

Arrived too late plant outside (too hot) growing in pots, also very small fragile plants; I have 2 plants which were recently planted from 1 gallon pots, we’ll see next year; Planted out to field on 10/13/03.
