CULT: TB: No 1st Year Bloom (was Too Crowded?)

I wonder how Beverly Sills could have gotten such a reputation? I have been
growing her for 15 years now, during which span she has been transplanted
seven times, and she has never failed to bloom the first year after
transplanting. I could name some cultivars that I have grown for a while
that never bloom the first year after being transplanted - All That Jazz,
Brandy, and Modern Classic come to mind (they usually make up for it the
second year by being extra-floriferous, though).
