Blooming today. I know not everyone is fond of Zurbrigg's intro with it's
strange colors and older form. This is the second stalk to bloom. In its
defense, CHIMERA is one of the few medians that manage to thrive under my
growing conditions. Here it's blooming in a spot long since abandoned for
dog holes. With all the scratching and zero attention it is still thriving.
Of the rebloomers growing on the premises, it's one of the most consistant
to make the attempt and easily the one that manages to successfully succeed
in that attempt. I don't know if it has any fertility or not, but with its
strong ability to rebloom under conditions that normally don't yield much
attempt at reblooming it seems it would be a good candidate for contributing
rebloom genes - or maybe its parents. Even if they are older varieties.
