How interesting that these are going to bloom up in Berkeley and down at 
the Huntington (any day now) at virtually the same time despite the fact 
that both are being grown in greenhouses under completely controlled 
climate conditions. The only thing neither location really controls is 
sunlight (intensity, duration, angle, etc.).
