order of bloom messed up in the Mid-Atlantic?
Is anybody else noticing an almost complete change in their normal bloom sequence? For example, Capistrano is usually early for me, it's not even showing any bud color yet, and other elepidotes that were usually behind it are ahead of it this year. Seems like this year what matters more is the plant's situation...those with more sun are leaping ahead. Maybe spring has been so cool and cloudy the only way the plant could warm up was if it was in a sunny location, especially a sunny afternoon location, and this was enough to override the usual genetically determined sequence?
