Thanks for that.  Very glad to know that.  I read the comment about "year
around watering" meaning that it is never dormant...... mine are in pots or
the ground and get year around watering and they most definitely DO go
dormant <Grin>.

Interesting to know that there is this variance.  Are these natural
varieties or were they separated within cultivated plants?
