been noticing that our bloom season has been
getting latter and latter for the past 8 years or so. we aren't under an
urban heat island effect, don't know if that is leading to the latter springs
and cooler winters.....anyway....these two flowers didn't start their bloom
cycle until the first week of May and both are still going with more buds to
open, peak bloom time used to be around April 15th, now it is around the 23rd of
April. The first will be introduced next year, not sure what to do with
the second (rose colored amoena).
