ALTERED STATE (Carr, 1997). This flower has an interesting coloration that photos do not do justice
for. It has a high bud count, and reblooms. The colors are better in humid weather. I have had it 12 years,
and the Rust Resistance Grade is a C+ to B-.
This is BROOKLYN TWIST (Lambertson, 1998). I have had it three seasons. It grows strong, but
does sometimes get the rust. Currently, I give it a Rust Resistance Grade of B-.
MARKED BY LYDIA (Temple, 1994). I almost lost this one because it does not like the natural soil here,
but the plant looks much more healthy since I put it in a good potting mix. I have had it several years. It can
rust fairly bad, but so far the last couple winters, has shown signs of better resistance. I give it a Rust Resistance
Grade of C at the time pending how it does this year.
