I have three in bud now in Zone 3 - two cvrs. of IMMORTALITY which
did 'not' bloom in June, BTW and the historic IB, CRIMSON KING which
looks like a really tall bloomstalk.
They were covered the past two nights when they temps. went down
to 30 degrees F. and stayed there awhile. We lost some tomatoes and
cucumbers and strangly, some of the MTBs look ragged, particularly
'Reminiscence' and 'Bumblebee Delight'...but they are far from dead.
We still have flowers blooming while vegs. are hitting the dust.
I have decided to not cover tonight since it is an almost balmy
49 degrees F. at 11:30 PM. Those 5 gal. buckets sitting in the
garden sporting a brick as a cap leave much to be desired. :)
