Some more blooms...

bethnorcal9April 15, 2013

They're showing up more and more every day! I'm loving it. 'Cept it's been cold again. Not fun to be outside yet. Come on warm weather!!

CATALONIA - bloom is huge... like 5-6"

GREY PEARL - the plant is finally getting some height and producing good blooms

KISME - often hangs down low

LAURA BUSH - interesting low-grower

LOUISE HAY - recovering from near death last yr...

MR LINCOLN - looking lovely

NIGRETTE - a very weird, odd-colored little bloomer

RUSTY - love the colors this time with the apricot striping

Wow, nice bunch of photos. Grey Pearl looks like a black and white photo. Should have been called, Out of the Ashes! Very cool and strange, indeed!

I literally sucked in my breath when I saw Grey Pearl. I love it. Is it really that gray? Catalonia's color is pretty amazing, too, not to mention Rusty, which is so appealing. Diane

Thanks everyone! Yes Diane, it really is that "grey!" Just a hint of lavender. I love it!

Gosh.. my heart nearly stopped seeing Catalonia... I'm intrigued by Rusty though... where can I find one?

Grey Pearl sure looks most interesting to me. Rusty makes me think of bananas and Nutella.

The Grey Pearl photo made me stare at it in puzzlement. Looks so strange - kind of a reverse of the movie Pleasantville - where there's no color, then color is brought into the world. Just looks like something that is impossible.
Very cool.
