Note - An * preceding a cultivar measurement indicates it was  doing well during that evaluation time but lacking uniformity in height or bloom; ** indicates a top performer with good bloom, vigor and uniformity; *** indicates outstanding performance.  All measurements are in inches except where noted and (   ) indicates missing data. Shaded areas show that cultivars weren't tested at that location.  Seed source list is on the last page of the report.
