Things are really beginning to wind down now. Some of the later blooming varieties are finished and some of those that rebloomed are also done. Those that rebloom are going to last a while because some scapes just showed up so much later. Here are some from today.
'Reason for Being' with four scapes that just started blooming a couple of days ago:
'Searing Wind' - I wish all the blooms had done what this last bloom is doing. I hope in another season they can hold the bloom up and not droop like bells. Both the first scapes and the rebloom scapes had blooms that were weakly attached. I suspect this one is only managing because of the lack of a breeze so far today:
'Orange Clown' had the rebloom scapes already growing before the first ones bloomed so they have been more like continued bloom since there was some overlap. Nearing the end now. With these large blooms and their bright color, it makes for a show when only a couple are open:
'Chesapeake Crablegs' is a later bloomer, so having rebloom scapes is really going to extend its bloom time. The plant performance gets the 'most improved' award this year, though early on I thought 'Tusk' might deserve it due the improvement in the blooms. Gotta go with this one, not so much for improved blooms, but the number, height and rebloom scapes and general fan growth are a huge improvement. The overlap between the first scapes and the rebloom is really going to extend the weeks of bloom for it. I suspect this one would really like being in the ground instead of a container:
'Banshee Baby Talk' is another late blooming one for me that now has rebloom scapes. They also had some overlap with the first scapes, but there are only two scapes:
There are still others reblooming which I've posted before and a couple that haven't started blooming yet. Some of the rebloomers are seedlings.
