You are right, Linda.  It blooms very late, early May here with the temperatures already above 100 degrees.  I cut the stalk, a nice one for a rebloomer, and the flowers that are opening in the house instead of the blazing sun are a much prettier shell pink.  It’s a good, problem free grower here, and those are hard to find.  I’m going to try to cross it with some of my temperamental beauties.  It would sure be nice to get the best of their qualities and not the worst.  At least I’ll try.

Francelle, if you have a good performer for your growing conditions, but
don't like it well enough to keep, send it off for trial in other
climates before pitching it.  It might have more presence in cooler
wetter climates, if it would live there.  And might be valuable for

ANNA BELLE B was been marginal here, but it did live for many years and
bloomed now and then, which is more than I can say for many cultivars.
It was a lovely color.  I don't know about APPLE BLOSSOM DAYS.

Send a start to Bill Burleson!
