(Photo of Solomon Kahn with his fiancee, Nicole Cronin). A quote from Solomon's obituary on SFGate: "He didn't care about being cool or hip. His No. 1 goal was to make people happy."


Pat Stamile had a guest plant of Solomon's Sunrise. Here is his comment: "Solomon's Sunrise bloomed in the spring and was very nice and I set seed on it.  However when it rebloomed it was absolutely spectacular.  Everything seemed to improve on rebloom-size, patterning, branching.  It was a wow."
