Re: REB: leaf count

Chuck, would leaf count on fans without stalks also be a clue? In other words, if there are younger fans without stalks in the same clump that have 12 or so leaf blades, would that be a clue that these are late cycle rebloomers?

The fans that have lost a lot of their leaf blades mostly lost them while temps were in the 80s and it was raining constantly. Younger fans that have developed in cooler temps are in better shape.

<Don't forget to check mature leaf count , as the ones with lower mature leaf count will usually produce earlier fall cyclic rebloom, and with summer rebloomers will produce earlier rebloom.
