From: "Merrily A. Smith" <merrilyann@erols.com>

Seems quite a while ago when I mentioned that Lovely Letty was going to
bloom in my Washington, DC garden.  Now there are five stalks with about 25
buds altogether.  One, loaded with buds, has been on the verge of blooming
for days.  Our temperatures have returned to seasonal normal (40s-50s day,
30s-40s night) and I'm beginning to wonder if it will bloom at all.  So I
built a polyester tent over it that comes to about 2 feet above the ground.
Do you think this will promote enough heat gain to persuade the flowers to
open?  Am wondering if I should complete the tent all the way to the ground.
I've done the same thing for other plants whose bloom stalks are far less
developed.  Any comments or suggestions would be most appreciated.
