HYB: update on rebloom siblings

  • Subject: HYB: update on rebloom siblings

Given the record heat and drought this summer, it may still be too soon to say what percentage of the HARVEST OF MEMORIES X RENOWN cross are 'summer' rebloomers, but at least I can say for sure that:

3 of the 13 surviving first year germinants are reliable rebloomers. Some maiden bloomed their first fall and did not bloom last fall or this fall, but these 3 bloomed all 3 years. The first year, one of these 3 fall bloomed early, then sent up another stalk later.

2 of the 8 surviving second year germinants are blooming - one last month (a summer?), the other just starting to show color. Maiden bloom was this spring, no bloom on any of them their first fall.

So, to summarize, 3/13 first year germinants that have survived are rebloomers; 2/8 of second year germinants are rebloomers. Not positive, but it looks like only one has the capability to initiate stalks early enough to avoid fall freeze.
