Why aren't my Super Ego blooming?

restorephoto(5 (central Indiana))May 28, 2010

I've had Super Ego for about 15 years, but it rarely blooms. I divided half the plants three years ago. No bloom the past two years at all and only two this year. The Polly Dodge and White Swirl that are immediately next to the Super Ego bloom reliably year in and year outÂwith occasional division.

Does anyone else have problems with their Super Ego not blooming? Why would it behave any differently than the Polly Dodge and White Swirl in that location?

The only thing I've read about Super Ego is that it blooms very briefly. Since it won the Morgan Award it ought to be an excellent performer. Is it possible you were sold the wrong cultivar? Are its neighbors stealing the fertilizer? That's a tough one. Can you try some in another area?
