Re: RE: Fall only bloomers

Hello Dana,
It's not on all the BH crosses, in fact it is only on a very few.  I just
found it interesting that it was even happening.  We have kept them just
because it was different.  Maybe crossing them with solid spring/fall
rebloomers will give us strong continuous bloomers.  Thanks for the input.
