Dancing Queen in Autumn

anna_in_quebec(z4 QC)September 17, 2011

My Dancing Queen, a relatively small bulb, surprised me by showing a scape in late summer. The scape is only 2 inches, but has produced 2 huge perfect blooms. But I fear something is wrong inside the bulb, as evidenced by the stunted scape, time will tell. In the meantime, she looks glorious in the late afternoon sun...

Anna,
Both my Dancing Queens did this same thing (very short scape) this year. I got them from WFF late last winter. They grew fine during the summer months. Keep us posted...mine don't seem to be showing any signs of problems.
