Here the medians do much better when the temps drop
in to the 20's if it is not for multiple nights in a row. The TB's however
have never been in bud here this early so I suppose I will find out how well
they fair. It has been a different spring bloom so far-many SDB's blooming
early and short. Several that usually have stalks with 2-3 buds blooming
very short and 1 bud only.
The MDB's are blooming right on time.
Am really sorry to hear about the bad weather you
are having-would be glad to send some of the rain that will fall here in the
next 4 weeks if I could. Mid april to Mid May is the wettest time of the
year hear, causes lots of rot in the fast paced spring growth and plays havoc
with trying to set pods. For every pod I get I average at least 4
I'm frankly glad so many iris are not blooming due to the drought. It
would more than likely be wasted effort.
Maybe medians are more cold resistant?
