Nothing significant about this bloom other than it is blooming today. It has never ever been a re-bloomer for me and for it to bloom at the end of October is unbelievable. It will be interesting to see if the two buds bloom as we have freezing temps in the next couple days. The bloom is much smaller than when it normally blooms in May.
