Three dominant factors here are winter/spring roller coaster freezes,
temperature, water.  When the weather is cool(60s and 70s) and damp
(cloudy, regular rain) and the cultivars are resistant to roller coaster
freeze damage, stalks go Jack and the Beanstalk mode.  However, most are
usually affected by the freezes here.  Some seem to be vulnerable all
winter/spring, some seem to escape most years, unless they get hit at
just the wrong time.  BAYBERRY CANDLE has bloomed pretty normally from
the time I first got it several years back, but was very stunted this

There are probably other things affecting stalk height, but these are
the ones I see year to year.
