I'm always surprised when an SDB or MDB doesn't do well for me - since 
they typically thrive here in the cold country - but it does occasionally 
happen. JB is a case in point.  I've been growing it since '01.  There's 
been very little increase so far, and this was its first spring to bloom.

As you can see, the best it could come up with was a flower with three 
distorted falls, one distorted standard, and some color breaking.  Not 
exactly the gorgeous bloom I've seen in other people's pics!  BUT, it's 
not dead yet, and this is only its second year in my garden.  I reamended 
my beds this summer and planted it in a couple different areas to see if 
I can make it any happier.  Time will tell.
