Dear Donna,

I will have to try to get these two cultivars that you mention, Florida
Calypso and Florida Fantasy, for next year! They sound wonderful! My
Florida Sweetheart are doing fine in beds that face West, exposed to full
sun from around noon to late afternoon. I have noticed that after a few
'special' cloud-less, extra hot days some fading has occured to some of the
older leaves, but the plant is so vigorous that this 'fault' is soon
corrected by their production of many more new leaves! The C. schomburgkii
(lance-leaf) species input to this cultivar/hybrid, it would appear, has
really made for a 'many-leaf' cultivar!!

Hope to see you soon!

Cheers and good growing,
