SS must have very specific requirements for water, soil etc. and I guess
I'm lucky here. I have 30 SS planted with 20 stalks and most have three
6" blooms open. Mine are on a slope that drains very well. Witch's Wand
is also on the slope. WW bloomed well this year, but has not grown as
well as SS. Maybe SS just like Texas.
