Dear PBSers,
	We've grown an assortment of Ipheion uniflorum cvs over the 
years and 'Rolf Fiedler' is not only quite distinct in form, but the 
only tender form. 'Jessie' is a decent blue and hardy enough, but the 
2 best growers are 'Wisley Blue' and 'Alberto Castilllo'. They come 
through and bloom grandly even after the harshest winters and foliage 

	'Charlotte Bishop' is a weak grower, but I wish some one 
might combine the best of Alberto with Charlotte - a "Charlotte 
Castillo"  so to speak, with large pink flowers and good vigor and 

	Any new cvs on the horizon ?		Best		Jim W.
