I've got a couple of those row-run Timm & Success seedlings from BCN, as
well, and they are the most vigorous and productive alnifolia selections in
my little collection of varieties, and the flavor is as good or better than
that of the named, tissue-cultured selections like Regent & Smoky. Still
well under 4 ft tall, but suckering and spreading vigorously.
