Vintage Wine has been for many many years my most reliable bloomer. No matter what, it just blooms and blooms well--many flowers, long season, near perfect blooms. Recently I've gotten 2 that are rivaling it, Bali Water Color and Carman Renee. In a couple of years they have really excelled. There was no adjust time for a new plant.

I can see from your pics why they are among your favorites. Especially like the cascading segments of Carmen Renee.

I've had Bali Watercolor for many years, and it hasn't rebloomed since the first year I had it. I'm not sure if it's a lack of sun or water that prevents it from reblooming here. It always does well on its original scapes though. I love your photo of Carman Renee. I'll have to check out that one.

Thanks for the kind comments. Forgot to mention that Vintage Wine does have a weakness: it fades a bit in the really hot & humid weather.
