After having her about 15 years I was saddened to find and have to announce that "Lillian Kathleen" 1999 (our first) has passed on to that big dirt bed somewhere out there. I had two clumps and both got the rot at the same time, they were in different parts of the garden.
I'm thinking that after the Georges registered "Kathleen Manning" in 2010 and I brought one home that "Lillian Kathleen" went into some kind of depression because she was only a dip and the new Kathleen was one of those new fancy tets. This year after blessing me with seed pods she just could not take the humiliation any longer of everyone gloating over the new Kathleen.
If anyone knows where I might purchase some Lillian Kathleen please contact me.
