CULT: more freeze survivors
In lieu of trial garden data - this list of freeze survivors was sent to
me by Bobby Gosnell, about 100 miles north of me in upper east
Tennessee. I haven't tried to grow all of these, but have noted which
ones usually do ok for me in bad freeze years. His were less damaged
than mine, probably in a better location.
For those of you who ask for recommendations. I didn't post these lists
last year or the year before, because <everything> bloomed. Unusual
weather patterns lately.
I'll make a list of the rest that bloomed here at my garden and post later.
BATMAN - never did well here
BLUE CHIP PINK - rarely blooms here
BLUE SUEDE SHOES
CELEBRATION SONG - my most reliable pollen producer - didn't make it
CONCISE - lived here briefly, might still be alive out there, but
definitely did not bloom
DAWN OF CHANGE
DUSKY CHALLENGER - oops, forgot to include this on my last post - only
one stalk, but at least it bloomed normally.
EARTH SONG - never happy here
HAUTE LES VOILES
HELEN COLLINGWOOD - <always> blooms, tho not as well this year.
HIGH CHAPARRAL - bloom frozen out in a pot
HIGH PROFILE - not happy here
HOLD THAT TIGER - super reliable here - but not this year. First year
since I got it that it hasn't bloomed - 20 yrs?
INTO THE NIGHT - usually escapes the freezes, not this time.
KISS OF KISSES
LACED COTTON - rarely blooms
LOVELY SENORITA - this one was new last year, wasn't too happy, did not
bloom this year.
MASTER TOUCH - used to have this, one of the more reliable ones, lost to
fescue (I think)
RED CANYON GLOW
RING AROUND ROSIE - not this year.
RIP CITY - yes! a bit uncooperative about blooming every year, but did
make a stalk this year.
STARS AND STRIPES
SUKY - erratic here, no bloom this year
