    In his book, Dr. Brown mentions that this spiral leafed hybrid is nearly extinct and only a couple people can still ID it. Has anyone on this board seen it or know of anyone making an effort to revive this old hybrid?

    I have a tiny one that Keith Hanks shared with me. It looks slow as molasses and will wintered in my greenhouse. It's a spiral leaf reminiscent of Cronstadt.

    Ron,

    I don't believe so, I will have to check. I've updated so many they all kind of blend together.
