|Info||'Blood, Sweat and Tears' (Dean 2000) was personally selected and named by the co-chairs, Connie Linder and Mary Schwartzbauer, of the 2000 AHS National Convention.|
It was gifted to each person that made an AHS national convention possible though their selfless efforts since that 2000 convention through 2009.
It is a cross of 'Little Wonder' x 'Aspen Gold' which picks up its vigor and compact growth form from Mom and subtle gold tones, texture, and leaf shape from Dad.
It thrives in northern full sun!
