I really don’t know why my arilbreds behave as they do.  I only have a half dozen varieties, Heart Stealer, Dawn Caress, Desert Moonlight, Chocolate Mint, Byzantine Art and Wind Rider.  Each clump will bloom all at once, ten to twelve stalks, almost to the point of bloom out.  Each flower only lasts a couple of days even though is usually isn’t too hot in late March when they are at their best.  When they bloom they are spectacular, but then they are gone.

That surprises me, because I'd expect a much longer season in AZ.  Does your heat end the bloom prematurely?  That's the problem I have with TBs, and sometimes even the latest of the arilbreds. 

Or do you grow just one type?  My season started over 2 weeks ago.  The 3/4-breds are now approaching peak bloom and a few 1/2-breds have bloomed, but only one 1/4-bred has opened so far. Here, arilbred bloom usually peaks between April 10th and 20th -- but I expect another month to 6 weeks of arilbred bloom. 

BTW, the longest arilbred season I had started on March 16 and ended June 1. Yes, I'm a compulsive statistician.
