Sterling, that's sometimes the size TBs blooms here.  I don't know if
KEEPER is supposed to be that small, but I've seen weather have a that
kind of dramatic effect on some cultivars here.  HAPPENSTANCE was
adorable that size, as were some of the others.  Sometimes, the entire
stalk is miniaturized, usually the number of buds and branching is also
greatly reduced.

Most amazing to me is that sometimes stalks with blooms this size can be
loaded with fertile pollen.

My guess has been that it's too much warmth and dry weather as stalks
are developing.

Watch out for rot if it starts raining a lot after it's been dry enough
to shrink blooms.
