|'Open Your Eyes' or 'Land Down Under'|
Thursday, May 18, 2017
Sometime things don't go as planned. I just added 'Open Your Eyes' to my collection last year. It snagged the Cook-Douglas Medal for best SDB. And it is a beautiful crisp blue and white gem. Supposed to bloom at 15" like many of my SDBs it bloomed a little on the short side this year. Well, more than a little! No I didn't drop it there that's where it bloomed. I do have a TB call 'Land Down Under."
I have a great clump of IBs called 'Lemon Drop.' Early on I noticed one bud that wasn't very lemony. Sure enough it turned out to be a plicata that looked suspiciously like 'Starwoman." After a comparison I am sure! It will get marked and returned home. I wonder how it managed to wander 30 feet during the winter?
