here also, frost has hit.
So many stalks in the garden still to open ...i
think it will be in vain this year...
that's why we must create more early rebloomers for
the late ones are OK for the milder climates, but it is not a
pleasant sight to see frozen buds!
i wish the rebloomer's data base would give the
time of rebloom, as well as the coldest reported zone.
so , depending on where you live, you would know
before hand (and before seeing them wasted) the ones best fit for your

I'm amazed to see some of the IMM kids and grandkids opening nearly
undamaged blooms after 4 or 5 nights of frost. This one is from a
yellow cycle rebloomer seedling: (IMM x CSONG) X MATRIX. Heavy
substance, tho petals thin out to transparent at the rims. Doesn't show
very well in the photo, but it had a faint blue wash on the falls when
it first opened. No sign of plicata veining - looks like regular
non-plic haft marks. The photo looks yellowish, but it's white, no
yellow tint visible.
