Re: Ridges on leaves
John: I am glad that you mentioned this strange situation with the
leaves, as I have it also this year - not before. Jazzed Up from
Schreiners bloomed beautifully last year - this year NO BLOOMS - but huge
and ridged leaves! It is the most noticeable - as the leaves are so big
and tall and "squirrley". We had a cold, wet, and fungus ridden spring
here. I sprayed about 4 times with a fungus spray - but that is the only
thing differently than I did the year before. Hope that someone out
there will answer us both - and give us a clue how to get blossoms -
and- get rid of---weird leavese. Donna
