We are blooming out really early and in all mixed bloom times. Early did not do much at all and late have bloomed early. Now comes the rain. But it is a beautiful show....
All you Kentuckians feel free to join in this thread. I know you have some beauties!!!

Looks like some of yours are blooming at the same time as mine Jane. I have late bloomers opening now which is a bit early. All mixed up this year for sure!

This is my second year for Triple Dip and it has about five stalks and many huge increases. It has been known to rebloom but do not know in what zone.
