Dear Paul,
	With literally thousands of selections and many more hybrids, 
I do not doubt this for a moment. Do you know what lactiflora you 
have? Is it a straight selection or a hybrid, named variety? It 
should be spread around as many  milder climate gardeners really 
crave large flowered lactiflora types.

	The real Q, do the flower stems fall down in the first rain ?
