CULT: Bloom reports

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

The SDBs I bought last fall from Schreiners are now putting on a truly
amazing performance.  Most are producing from 6-12 bloomstalks on first
year rhizomes! The champ is 'Inner Peace' with 12 stalks and a fine
pallida-type fragrance.  Instant clump!  All of the new IBs from them are
showing bloomstalks, and all but 2 of 14 new TBs.  Excellent quality
rhizomes, well-cured, seem to be the secret.  Mine obviously had been held
since digging time in June or July  for September shipment and looked
pretty dessicated when they arrived.

Roots were not shaved and they were planted directly in the garden.
