Dear Lauw:
Just how hardy this species is I do not know. I would like to try some
in both Brittany and Normandy. Can I obtain some from you and have you
ship them there? In Brittany, where my garden recently won the prize as
the best new garden, I have places where it can go to town if it can
survive. do let me know. Cheers, John E. Bryan
