Dear All;
	I grow both of the above and the yellow tipped L. v. carpaticum.
	L. aestivum (which always blooms prior to vernum and this 
never made sense) increases in clump size and self sews with some 
abandon. Seems like every flower stalk make hugs grape-size clusters 
of fruits, these fall a foot or so away and a new clump is there next 
	cv  'Gravetye Giant' is not nearly so vigorous, but does fine.
	L. vernum and var carpaticum is much slow than L. aestivum 
and I do not recall any self sewing and few seeds. It is not 
dwindling though so I shouldn't complain.

	All are perfectly hardy which I can't say for any of the 
other species I have tried here.

	happy Holidays	Jim W.
