Re: CULT: "Blooming Out"

Song, with about 20 assorted sized fans, hasn't put up any stalks yet.

It took Beverly Sills 5 yrs before she got around to blooming here, and when she finally did bloom, it was on one stunted stalk with two deformed blooms. That was two summers ago. Then last summer she bloomed beautifully on multiple stalks at full height. Six yrs is a heck of a long time to wait for decent bloom! Now that she's apparently finally managed to acclimate to northern MN, it'll be interesting to see if she blooms reliably every year.

I hope CS blooms for you this year.


USDA zone 3b, AHS zone 4 - northern Minnesota
normal annual precipitation 26-27"
slightly acid, potassium deficient, clay soil
