LAVANDULACEA that you sent me made it through the winter here, and has a few increases, not sure if it will bloom this year or not, but it's doing well. Smiling

Leslie and Tom, you guys can be first in line for an increase of 'Sunbreak'. I picked it up last year at our club's sale, so I might be able to sweet-talk the club member to bring more this year. Crossing Fingers! Smiling

Warmer weather is predicted the rest of the week. I anticipate many more TBs to show themselves soon!

Thanks Leslie, Magic Bubbles is a nice IB. The database describes it as peach colored with a coral pink beard. Not sure mine matches that description, but it matches a couple of other photos in the database and I like having a pink self in that class.

I think there is some peach in the hafts. And I bet it has a different color dry than wet, so that beard could look quite coral pink.
