I am discovering that rot has taken foothold and am chasing it down with spoon, knife and diluted bleach. Too late for a few new rhizomes. My Splashcata is a goner, my Italian Velvet is on the way out and Paul Black and others from Schreiner's have some damage.
Sea Power finally bloomed but somewhat shorter than expected. About 8 inches less than its expected 38" height:
|'Sea Power' (Keith Keppel, registered 1998). Seedling 93-89B. TB, height 38"|
|'Fimbriated Space' (George Sutton, R. 1998). Sdlg. G-71-C. TB, 35"|
Every bit as spectacular as expected, Decadence is riveting. It is also less than half its normal bloom height at about 17":
|'Decadence' (Barry Blyth, R. 2001). Seedling H83-G. TB, height 38"|
Daylilies have begun to bloom.
