The season in review
I finally finished uploading all my pics from Kauai on the Kauai thread, but like George H. I found some lovely surprises when I got home from vacation.
As we were admiring the huge Edi Moragne trees in Hawaii, my little tree back home was blooming:
I don't know why more people don't have this one. She's a big elegant bloom with a killer scent and big bright foliage. Also supposed to be very hardy.
After waiting an entire Ohcomeonalready for Leona, she finally bloomed when we got back:
The blooms are small right now because our heat is so bad, and the scent is light cola but the colors are fabulous!
This is the seedling bed in mid August. It's now much more dense and taller:
This was where my biggest and happiest surprise was:
YES!! That's an inflo on a JL Tornado seedling!! The biggest seedlings are just under three years old and my two most impressive, JLT1 and Orange Splendor1, both have big inflos on them--I am psyched! The sneaky things were just waiting until I wasn't around to pop those out, hehe.
The many faces of Desert Sunrise:
Mike, I don't know why I can't find pics of Delightful blooming while it rooted, but it did! They smelled wonderful, too--thanks again!
It's been a great season!
I'll keep y'all updated when the two seedlings bloom. I can only hope they'll be as nice as the plants they're blooming on, which are both vigorous with impressive foliage. Fingers crossed!
