Nice photo Will. I've never seen Holy fire
before. Now if only someone would create a white iris with red

Good eye catching those tulips in the Intygreyshun
photo. Yes, it's a spring pic. I've been going
reducing images, cropping, renaming, etc. I'll be sure and
note when the pic is from in the future.
This one's not
reblooming. Those arn't the stalks that got frozen.
curious of rebloomers for my area. I'm in SW MO about zone 6. I'm
wanting ones that
rebloom early, or repeat. I've got lot's that got
frosted this year, and would like to find some that
bloom earlier. I
had Feedback rebloom through most of october. I sometimes get some SDB
Again stalks in july-aug. But, all my other ones are trying to bloom
too late. Does fertilizing in
the spring/early summer help
speed up the rebloom stalks? I really appreciate Suttons rebloom
reliability chart, I'm always using it and a couple sites I've found that
rate them. Sutton's does list
zones, but I haven't really heard from
others in my own area, and what they've had good luck with.
suggestions appreciated. If it's a SA that's a plus. I'm
researching ones to get for next year. I
like to do that in winter,
in anticipation for spring. Here's a Holy Fire from this spring. Thanks.

a pic of BB Intrygreyshun(ensminger '79). This one performed better than
Batik for me. It's
not as constrasty(not as dark, and
not as white of splashes). Definately more "greyed." It had
much wider branches, but the <BR>
stem likes to
lean over. It has never totally fell over though, just kinda
sways. We get lot's of bad
spring storms and hail, and
lot's get knocked down. It's also pretty tall compaired to my other
medians. The stalks are tall, but the foliage stays
I know what Bill is talkin' about with the wood cutting,
that's what i'm getting ready to do. <BR>

frozen bloom stalks. Some will hopefully make it, some totally
