How many buds?
and the texture?
Since this one seems to be an autumn bloomer that
doesn't rebloom in the spring...
you should keep all of it's pollen in the deep freezer so you can daub it
in the spring on some reblooming SDBs for me, pleeeeease....
Like Forever Blue, Cry Baby, Auroralita, Fairy Footsteps, or anything that
will be willing to bloom in your very tough climate!
Everything here has frozen, about 100 stalks; that is really an incentive
to try and produce EARLY rebloomers!
