So long as two flowers are not open at the same time on the terminal, what's
the problem?  It might be nice to have a second terminal bud open just as the
lst one closes, but surely is not a fault if the second bud opens later.  If
the first bud starts to open when the first flower is still fresh, it will
probably reduce the bloom season for a Siberian...that would be the worst
consequence I would think.  Now as for how to deal will a second terminal bud
starting to open when the 1st is still fresh, that is another issue on the
show bench. I would remove the 2d bud so that it does not interfere, but of
course that is a matter of grooming.  Hope this is responsive to your
question. Clarence Mahan in VA
