Quite a few plants had blooms on them this morning, but we have had a cold front move in over the past few days and temps are pretty cool here now, common for Easter. The temp. was down in the fifties again this morning. So even the plants that have now had several blooms on them already are still not opening fully with the temp. staying down. I guess I need more EMO plants.
One plant that did open fully and looked beautiful this morning was Helix.
Some not opening fully:
'Femme Fatale': This plant has had a half dozen blooms already, but still they are held back by the cool temps.
'TAR AND FEATHER' Looking very good this year, one of my favorites last year.
'Royal Eventide': This one is an early bloomer each year and has had several blooms. I divided the plant last year and it is doing great again already.
I posted a photo earlier of 'Siloam Double Classic' as a single, this morning I had this bloom looking more like a double the way it should.
'Debbie Durio' The bloom is open, but the color is not as bright as normal with the temps down low still.
I think this year with the seedlings and new plants I will not be able to post them all when they bloom.The seedling beds are just starting to show a few blooms.
Just like the named varieties, they are not opening fully or the colors are not very bright.
Here is one just as an example: hope it brightens up a lot.
I do finally have a few other than yellow starting to open now, and some tall red ones I will check again later this afternoon. I do hope they open fully and are look bright and cheerful.
