It's not that they find it distasteful, Catharine. It's just that slugs are lazy
- and S&S has toomuch substance (as the name suggests) for them to be able to
easily chomp holes in it.

One of my favorites is Aphrodite - leaves are fairlyplain medium green, but it
has a double white, fragrant flower. And I love Patriot - all that gorgeous
white in the leaf reallyl ights up a shady area.
