Here are 3 of my early bloomers:
First an tiny Miniature Dwarf Bearded (MDB) from Paul Black, 'Spot of Tea.' It was in my garden for a few years but getting more shade than I thought. Now it's happy! This Caparne-Welch Medal winner is a delight at about 5".
|'Spot of Tea' Black, 1988 MDB|
|'Joyful Love' Johnson, 2014 SDB|
|'Lovesick Blues' Lauer 2007 SDB|
'Stich Witch' snuck by me... it had one bloom which I missed!
