Will the real Praisworthy please

Stand up?

I had Praiseworthy planted in two different places in my garden. They both bloomed for the 1st time this year..but I dont think either one is really Praiseworthy. Sometimes I think I would be better off..tossing the names to the wind and just enjoying the blooms! But then I wouldnt be able to enter shows so I couldnt do that.

Praiseworthy A

Praiseworthy B

Hmmm. I had a Clarence that isn't Clarence and a Missouri Mist that isn't Missouri Mist this season. I can see that my Ruth Black is not going to be even close to Ruth Black already.

I'm only buying from reputable, big sellers from now on.

I've got an old pic from Argyle Acres and can't tell for beans since the angle only shows the end of the beard. Notice Argyle is up for sale.
