Postby redcrx » Nov 13, 2014 8:50 am

Corkscrew is a 'Tortifrons' x 'One Man's Treasure' cross.

I have had it growing in a raised bed since I got it from Chris in 2009. It's buried in the bushes and I usually lose track of it until its mentioned on the forum and I go and look to see how it's doing.

Here is Corkscrew in the 2009 season.
