This one opened back around Thanksgiving. I didn't post it,
to get a more normal shot of a later bloom, but the other buds just
dried up. Since cold damage typically shows up in falls before
(petals on outside, so more exposed), I'm guessing I did this to the
standards (and later blooms) when I disturbed the roots.
I expect this one to show weak stalks when established, like Blue
Of all inherited traits, seems like weak stalks in pod parent is as close
'always' as anything gets in tetraploid genetics.
I'm gratified that you guys are enjoying these. Makes it seem
worthwhile tippy-toeing through 20 pots. Still a long time till
