Does anyone here grow 'Absolute Treasure'? If so, has it ever rebloomed for you?

It's reblooming in my garden now, but isn't registered as a rebloomer and neither of its parents are rebloomers. It's weird because I usually don't get much rebloom even on plants that are considered to be "reliable".

I don't grow it, but I just Sherwin -Wright open a bloom (very short stalk), and I'm sure in my case, it's "stress-induced". Has it been in your garden long ? How was the spring bloom? Maybe you should let Rick Tasco know about it, and he could help shed some loght on it....Arlyn

I've had it a couple of years and it bloomed quite nicely just over a month ago. The clump is big and healthy looking and the current stalk is normal in appearance. It may be "confused", but I'm pretty sure it's not stressed.

I'll probably contact Rick at some point, but they're in the middle of the their shipping season right now and I didn't want to bother him at the moment. Just wondered if anyone else had experienced this with 'Absolute Treasure'. It happens, 'Magnificent Masterpiece' is not registered as a rebloomer either, but it apparently does so on a regular basis for many people.



Or, it might just be one-off sort of thing that has no explanation and never happens again. Shrug!

my guess is that that particular rhizome is just late to the party.
