California has had a crazy year. Our winter had very mild tepmeratures.
SDB'S bloomed late and were typically very short. It is almost June and I
have many SDB"S still blooming. Reblooming SDB'S are stronger than ever and
loaded with blooms.
Right now I have TB's, SDB's IB'S, BB'S, LA'S, MTB'S, Siberian's, Spuria's
and several species all in bloom at once. This has never happened to me
