First blooms :)
Well, my ASB that pushed out a couple blooms last November is showing its first color this year already. We just had a nasty freeze a month ago, so it hasn't been very long in recovery/greening out this season.
I must say, I'm very impressed with this shrub, so far! Good news on the other fronts, I can see bloom buds on ALL the other ones: the neighboring Trophee and Oregon pride, the Nikko Blue and Madam Emilliore (sp) in the back yard, and even one of my 8 potted masjas which were less than a year old when I got them last September.
I'm wondering if it's too late to add anything to the soil for affecting color. The petals showing on the ASB are pink (again). I'm wanting more of the blues and purples overall. Can future blooms this season have their color changed?
So, bring on the color! :)
