    good eye. You are correct. I’ve made the correction. Also be aware that this cultivar is now widely accepted to actually be a Ch. lawsoniana cultivar.

    Ah, That might explain the rough winter. I seem to have trouble with the lawsoniana’s here the first two or three winters. I just read something on-line that said it was bred in the German nurseries of G. J. Draht in the 60’s. Did we Americanize the name?

    Nope, just a simple misspelling. In German, “draht” and “drath” sounds the same.
