Thanks for the info. SDBs peak around mid
March (later this year) TBs peak around the third week in April. Is that
less then up there?
Thanks again for the insight.

An interesting piece of information. Definatly climatic. I havn't
noticed any bloomout on SDB in my climate. Actually I don't get much
bloomout but when I do it is on larger plants, TBs and occasionally an
IB. Usually if I just leave rhizome alone, it will put up something
next spring. It is odd having a rhizome sit througth the season with
no foliage and come back to life the next year.
I have a couple of
suspicion of that what happens that might cause
One is that
the longer growing season that you have results in a lot of
by the time the weather is cold enough to initiate buds.
Thus all the
rhizomes bloom in spring.
The other possibility is that the plants
start groing actively in
spring before there is long enough daylight to
initiate flower bud
growth. Thus all the daughter rhizomes have grown too
much to respond
to bio-chemical inhibitors from dominant mother
When do SDB and TB peak for you? I'm wondering about time
two peaks. I suspect it is much less then what we get in

Hey Griff (and everyone else) it seems like
SDBs and MDBs
are much more prone to bloomout here. We usually don't have
TB bloomouts but many in the SDBs. Has anyone else noticed this
