Two SDBs Blooming in Their First Season

This wonderful SDB plicata has established itself nicely in its first year.  Introduced last summer by Thomas Johnson it likes upstate NY so far.  The flower is small but dramatic with a lush orange beard. This bloomed on May 9 in Mendon.

Last year was my first order from Hugh Stout.  The quality of the order was impressive.  GRIS has placed our club order for our public sale July 22 and 23 at Pro-Moore Farms in Henrietta.  Here's 'Frankenberry,' Stout's 2016 introduction looks good and bloomed in its first year.  The dark cherry red is veined in black. The beards are purple with bronze tips.
