MED: SDB Bloom in Utah


The SDB's are approaching peak bloom here, and although I do not grow a
large number of them, they are putting on quite a show this year. Every SDB
in the garden will bloom this year, except for CHANTED (Blyth, 91).
Naturally, this is the one I am most eager to see in flower. The two
standouts for performance are RASPBERRY JAM (Niswonger, 81) and PIPPI
LONGSTOCKINGS (Innerst, 85) with over 30 stalks each. In fact, PL is a bit
too vigorous with stalks blooming at 16 to 18 inches and up to five buds
each giving it more the character of an IB than an SDB. It is a very
attractive flower in both form and color, however, presenting a striking
contrast between the lemon chiffon standards and fall rims and the deep
burgundy spot surrounding the white beards.
