This has been the best-ever rebloom season
here. Season of Mists, Renown, Lunar Whitewash, Baby
Blessed and a couple of SDB seedlings blooming at the moment.
Stalks up on Egg Nog, Istanbul, Blazing Sunrise, Over and Over, Again
and Again, and several SDB, IB and TB seedlings. A milder than
usual month of November is forecast here, and I hope it proves to be so, since
it will be maiden bloom for some of those seedlings. Season of Mists has
been the outstanding performer here, at 35" tall, well branched, 13 buds
and lovely fragrance. With three stalks in a clump of three rhizomes,
it will have provided at least a month and a half of bloom.
Curiously, Haunting, which usually
reblooms reliably here at Halloween, has decided not to bloom at all this fall
(unless it sends up late stalks, which it did in 2006 and 2007, blooming on cut
stalks on December 3 and January 5 of those years). What's been the
experience of any of you who have it, so far? --
