On May 8th you wrote to the yahoo group mentioning that Ballarena
was going to bloom for you. I'm
hoping you understand that as an amateur
hybridizer I was
thrilled to learn that a plant originated here was growing
successfully elsewhere. I registered
Ballarena in memory of my mother and if I'm
very very very
lucky one day another peony will grow here which I will name in
memory of my father--"Saval."
Ballarena spends many happy years with you.
