TB:This and That
I have a small collection of SDB rebloomers and three or four are blooming.
TB's: BLATANT (many stalks) is showing color and will be first to bloom,
closely followed by FANCY WOMAN. I bought FW when it was new and it didn't
survive. This one came in the Big Dig. It's only got three fans but one has a
nice TALL stalk!
SUMMER RADIANCE has been one of the first to bloom for years. I thought it
wasn't going to bloom this year, but today I see stalks forming. RADIANT

overwhelmed . . . almost! So many things to combine and so many things to try. Lots
of stalks in most everything!
So much pollen and so little time!
