Re:SA RE Seedling

Thanks for the information. I have sneeking suspicion that the genetics
for cold protection in this seedling is set for warmer climates and
that it would not survive well in colder climates. Perhaps it could be
trialed in a colder climate to see what it does there.

Don't know what triggered bloom. Had a cold and wet Dec. and Jan. Temps
didn't get below 25F during that period, still is usually too cold for
rebloom. It is out in the middle of a field, no extra lighting at all.
Noticed that there are more and more seedlings (especially from Mtn.
Sunrise) that seem to be able to make it through cold weather. Return
To Bayberry will send up stalks in Nov., go dormant through the cold in
Dec, Jan and Feb then the same stalks bloom in early March. We might be
on the verge of cold hardy blooms....will have to wait and see.

It must be nice to get bloom this early. Any ideas of what may be
triggering bloom stalk starting in Jan?

Is there any security or street lighting nearby?
what is day and night temperatures in the few weks preceding starat of
bloom stalk?
