Question on Nikko Blue
After reading this forum last year, I realized why my Nikko Blue did not bloom past the first year I planted it --- it blooms on old wood.
I am Zone 5.
I watched for the new buds which came in August as they should. Yeah!! I over-wintered it and made sure I had plenty of leaves mulching it over winter.
Now it is growing green foilage. The stems still have the buds on them - but they all look brown and dead. I am hoping this is normal?? and as the plant continues to grow, I will have blooms?
I am just so anxious for this to bloom again - and hope someone can tell me that everything is going to be okay. Thanks a lot.
