Lauer 98, HM 01 (Edith Wolford x Breakers) X Mother Earth
Opened this morning with 8 buds on 4 branches and, I quess, a spur. Low
branch not shown in the stalk photo.
Good, strong 35" stalk. Overlapping hafts. Lots of
pollen. Slightly fragrant. Very nice!
EW, B and ME have never rebloomed for me, despite several years of my best
efforts. This is first time bloom,
planted 7/05. Reported to rebloom to Zone 7, as far as I know.
Already thinking Lynsy Alexandra for next spring!
BTW - I don't treat for leaf spot, since I want to know which seem
resistant. Have noticed more compost =
less leaf spot.
