Since this is one of my favourites, I just added two more photos into the Database.

I find that over the last 13 years, it has been constantly in bloom, and always has good substance to the petals. Sometimes it has a stronger golden glow in its center, and sometimes it shows more pink. Here are a few more examples.

I hope others also find a joy in growing Lilac Snow: such a gift from Mr. Munson's extensive collection.

Lilac Snow is new to me this year. It seemed to settle in okay and started putting up scapes. I went out of town for a few days and when I came back the scapes had shriveled and yellowed. Pretty sure it hadn't gotten watered while I was gone and being a new planting, it needed the moisture.

With regular watering, the fans have grown nicely and look pretty good, but I'm not going to see blooms this year.
