So here's a question: does ER bloom as prolifically as CRIMSON

As they grow here Eleanor is the more dependable rebloomer, never
failing to rebloom and usually in the fall although it has rebloomed
some in the summer. Crimson King hardly ever reblooms here, and yes it
is Crimson King as it has been ID'd by a number of HIPS people including
Phil Edinger. I have seen Crimson King reblooming in many warmer
Central Valley towns but usually during the Winter. We probably don't
get much rebloom on Crimson King because we transplant every September.
Indian Chief has NEVER rebloomed for me.
Send a picture or possibly even a rhizome of your unknown to Phil. This
is a service he provides while being the HIPS ID Chairman. And if you
are sending a rhizome, call or write first to see if he has the room. I
think you may still have time this year! Philip Edinger, P.O. Box 637,
