Bringing a stalk indoors might just work. I have tried that in the past, and it has worked to get some of the anthers to produce pollen. I think the combination of abundant dew and searing morning temperatures tends to "fry" some of the pollen on certain varieties. Feedback is one of them.

I can almost hear the "Hallelujah Chorus" in my head as I contemplate replanting that clump in a new bed . . . hehehe!
