Another atypical littleun that HATES my garden.  I've been growing VT 
since '00 with very little increase and no bloom until this single, 
deformed flower struggled open this spring.  As luck would have it, one 
of the dogs snapped it off as soon at it opened, too. I can't imagine why 
an MDB that has even been reported to rebloom in MN is having such a 
difficult time for me, esp when most other MDBs do beautifully.  And I 
know it must have a much nicer flower elsewhere.  Surely it couldn't have 
won an HM looking the way it does in this pic! 

VELVET TOY (B. Dunbar by D. Sindt, 1972) MDB, 7", M & RE (rebloom 
reported in CA, IL, IN, MI, MN, MO, NE, NJ, OR, VA, WA, Ont, zones 4-7, 
9). S. deep violet; F. deep violet with white ray pattern; white beard. 
HM 1973

USDA zone 3b, AHS zone 4 - northern MN
acidic clay soil
