RE: true to color

It is probably not your eyes.  It could be the picture as blues are hard
to capture.  Then again it could be the culture conditions.  I have had
Cycles and Edith Wolford take on slightly different colouring in
different years.  This year both these cultivars had less striking
colouring.  I noticed that Edith Wolford in the convention gardens was
blooming with the less striking colouring.  I had asked the gardeners
whether they had seen the brighter colours on Edith Wolford but it was
their first year of bloom.  Anyone else experience this?

		Dave Soper referred to the possibility that some
rebloomers may not initially
		true to color the second
		time around.  Are there circumstances in an ordinary
garden with TBs in which
		the initial spring bloom may
		not be true to color? I'm thinking about hydrangeas
(sp?) which turn from
		to blue depending on nature
		of the soil.  So, if my PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE looks more
purple in real life than
		the picture in the catalog, is it
		the picture, the soil, or my eyeballs?

		Still learning every day.
