Don't know what triggered bloom. Had a cold
and wet Dec. and Jan. Temps didn't get below 25F during that period, still
is usually too cold for rebloom. It is out in the middle of a field, no
extra lighting at all. Noticed that there are more and
more seedlings (especially from Mtn. Sunrise) that seem to be able to
make it through cold weather. Return To Bayberry will send up stalks
in Nov., go dormant through the cold in Dec, Jan and Feb then the same
stalks bloom in early March. We might be on the verge of cold hardy
blooms....will have to wait and see.
