Hi Donna,
 Glad to hear you made out ok in the storm.

 The anthracnose is supposed to be deadly, but it's not supposed to be able
to survive in our summer heat. This is what I've been told. It's supposed
to be more of a problem back in the cooler mountain areas.

 Have you had a chance to ask anyone at the J.C.Raulston Arboretum? How's
the "large" border looking this time of year? Haven't had a chance to go
back in almost a year. Miss it a lot.
