Greetings everyone, everything is looking pretty good for a good blooming season. I haven't gone through yet and checked all the threads for a plant fix yet but I am looking forward to it.

Hi Robert,
I admire the red one's structure, and how the branches are exposed rather than all covered up with leaves. It brings one's gaze back up to the beauties at the terminals. And then there's the rugged look of the caudex in contrast to the fragile look of the blossoms--remarkable! Lovey dubby Thumbs up

Robert they are just beautiful! Real Stunners! Can you tell me how to encourage branching? Mine just tend to be blooming sticks growing straight up out of the caudex.

Hey everybody!! Sorry I've been swamped with work and not online as much as I enjoy.
Limit the stems that grow from the caudex to get the main bigger shoots to fatten and grow, by hard cutting at first shaping then pinching off any new little sprouts. Fertilize in early spring with chicken manure as a top dressing then use basic fertilizer throughout the summer. nodding
