You're welcome Christian,
I may have posted one like it but I don't think I posted that very picture
before. Sorry if I did. I have several shots of it blooming with 6 ,
5 and 4 falls. Funny little plant.
We did indeed have two late freezes that zapped the sdb's pretty
badly. Some didn't even bloom even though the foliage was more than big
enough. Many that did bloom bloomed very short. Only now are some of
the later stalks that are developing a bit taller.
I'd be interested to read what you come up with on your hypothosis for
polytepal tendencies and cold weather being related. I don't recall hearing
anyone research that possibility before. Good luck!

'zapped' a few stalks down in the fan? I'm working an angle on "frost related

Thanks in advance for your help with the hybridizing question.
