Hello, I guess I will start the 6a thread, first a little specific growing conditions for my garden. We have very little to no snow cover for most of the winter, with multiple freeze/thaws in late winter/early spring. Central Washington State is a semi-desert, I know most people think of Seattle and all its rain when Washington State is mentioned, but there is more to the state than Seattle. I water from a well, and give my plants all they need, I also fertilize with 16-16-16, and the circle hits two of my beds, and has liquid nitrogen ran through it several times a year. We have dry hot days, and cool nights during bloom season.

My Favorites, perform very well:
Highland Pinched Fingers
Bold Heritage
Oceans Eleven
Zada Mae
Joan Derifield
Yellowstone Canyon

I have planted many the last two years, and hopefully many of them will perform well, and become favorites.

I can certainly vouch for Highland Pinched Fingers and Joan Derifield. I just got them this year and they were doing great at the local garden where i got them. Joan is simply beautiful and they had giant clump of Pinched Fingers that stood 3.5 feet tall.

Cindy- We were zone 5b here, but then it was changed to 6a about four years ago, global warming I guess.
