Might be of interest to anyone looking at fall maidens.  Falls more tan than photo shows.
Improvements from last year's fall maiden bloom:
8 buds, including triple terminal - 5 last year, double terminal
2 branches and spur - one more than last year
opened 10 days earlier, despite summer drought
Other factors:
substance no better
bloom form and color no different
branching still way too close and high
strong 36" stalk, same as last year
still very healthy & vigorous
BTW - 3 days after counting 5 buds on Again And Again, it had 8. Maybe more to come.
Before anyone asks, those are dahlias in the background.  Growing them (octoploid) from seed
is a real 'box of chocolates'!
