Some of you get rebloom...I do not. I have seen a couple of clumps of Immortality in neighborhood gardens but no bloom here. I was looking through some folders and found theses from 2014. We just need to be patient....this is what they will look like.............Maybe a few more pictures tomorrow.....

Oh, boy is right! So many lovelies! If I didn't already have Samba Queen on my list, that photograph would have done it. Smiling And I really should add Polka, shouldn't I--I'm Polish on my mother's side. Rolling on the floor laughing

I have planted Picture Book near some purple/white ones and Blue Rising. I love your photo of that color combo. Can't wait to see them bloom next year.
Polka and seedling are really pretty too.

Great pictures Paul, as usual, and many of them caused me to make purchases in the last few years. Samba Queen and Picture Book, I also got Absolute Treasure this year in a trade.

I looked for Absolute Treasure at convention, but did not see it. Perhaps it already bloomed. I like the photos, but will not grow it as it is listed at 42" here. I have a 38" which was hybridized by a friend, but really don't care for them over 36". Not only personal preference, but they get blown around by the east winds off the ocean.

In my experience, Samba Queen is exceptionally pretty, but not terribly vigorous.
