TB: Fogbound & other 'storebought' survivors.
FOGBOUND opened a perfectly normal looking bloom here yesterday (no
protection from freezes). Such a lovely flower - must confess I was
pretty amazed to see it bloom. It's short, and has small blooms, but
that's usually the norm for most 'bloodlines' here.
The other storebought (i.e., registered cultivars) that have bloomed
here this year, growing out in the ground, with no protection from the
SUNNYSIDE DELIGHT (short and few buds, normal big bloom)
LIGHTNING RIDGE (many fewer stalks than usual, but at least she came
through. normal stalks & blooms)
SUNNY DISPOSITION (very short, small, few buds)
HARVEST OF MEMORIES - I must have 30 or more clumps of this scattered
everywhere - only two stalks have showed up. But it seems to be running
very late, so maybe there will be more?? short and few blooms
DUSKY CHALLENGER - one stalk, looks ok, but seems to have stalled, so
LACY SNOWFLAKE - abundant, tall, large, healthy stalks with normal
enormous blooms. At least I <think> that's what it is - came from
WalMart & was labeled LS, but we all know how that goes. It definitely
wins the award of the year.
An old red remnant of a recently rescued row - possibly SPARTAN. Short
GINGERBREAD CASTLE - as reliable here as LIGHTNING RIDGE. Never a
prolific bloomer for me, but a normal stalk with normal blooms.
KELAT SKIES - one stalk, normal large bloom
PRINCE OF BURGUNDY (IB) - one stalk with one bloom that was very late.
WARBLER (IB) - opened yesterday
Seems like I've overlooked a few...
Some of the other super reliable ones here didn't make it this time.
