|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.

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