Adam, I don't usually have any trouble with it.  I used it a lot in the beginning of my program.  I was able to use it both ways.

If you have trouble with the pollen try bringing a stalk indoors to open.  You could be getting damage from a light frost or dew.

Hi Mary Lou & Linda . . . 

It is HARD to believe that you got a seed pod out of 'Feedback'!  wow!  I've tried so many times, and gave up when I tossed my clump!  ha!  But I can start up any time . . .  the place I threw it is apparently not weedy enough to kill it.  It bloomed last year!

Curious to know . . . . do you get any pollen of it, ever?  That was the first thing I noticed about it around here.

 I may have to dig it up and put it in a reblooming bed, if I *ever* get one made.  I really loved the fragrance of it, which is why I got it in the first place.  :-)

I promised Betty offlist I'd tell her what this was when it bloomed.
It hasn't and won't this winter.  This is one stalk from a huge grove
of a Feedback X Entangled, from the 07 seed crop.
Planted out spring of 08, fall maiden, too late that year.
Nothing big enough to bloom, spring of 09. Too late after the cold,
wet summer that year. Every one big enough tried that fall.
Nothing big enough last spring.  Fall stalks on every one big enough 
despite the drought. (It is inside the Region 6 guest bed and got
watered along with the guests).  Dug a less mature stalk and brought
it indoors, but it didn't bloom.
Love the branching and bud count. So vigorous it's a thug in the garden.
But, Aaargh!
