I'm sure the short-stalks problem I'm having this year is a 
consequence of weather -- way too cold a spring.  Last year, the last 
of my worries was short stalks.  And BIG blooms.  I had to stake and 
stake and stake...

The least affected were those planted in my eastside bed, morning sun 
only, for some reason.

Immortality bloomed for me only its first year (stalk probably set at 
its origin.  It's in a Southwest bed that might not get enough sun 
for it; it's my last bedful to bloom this year -- no stalk on Imm.

I may be getting less fertility too; jury out on TBs.  At first I 
thought I wasn't getting pollen, but there's lots on some, so others 
just stressed I think.
