Is there such a thing as a reblooming LA? If there are such creatures
are they worth the garden space? In other words, how do they stack up
against non-reblooming LA's for color selection and vigor?
> There are a few LA's that have been known to rebloom. Red Echo, Blue
Duke, Urraba Gold. They are just the same as the once bloomers.
Remember tho, that some of the new ones are Tets, which means there is a
chance they might be hard to grow. Full sun, plenty of moisture in the
spring, and plenty of good "stuff" for them to eat (they are heavy
feeders) and they should do fine in your area.
Hope this helps, and Good luck!
