    Heavy clay soil. Planted at base of Just Joey and Opening Night roses. In shade much of the day. Might be why the flowers are much shorter than another JT in a different location of the yard?

    Name of an English progressive rock band from early 70's; Jethro Tull was originally an English agricultural pioneer from Berkshire who helped bring about the British Agricultural Revolution (~ 1700).
