New record for Psycho

The latest in well over a decade that Psycho had a bloom (in other words the last bloom fell off) was Feb. 16. Today it still has six inflos with many buds and at least one or two flowers open on each. There are several other inflos with buds. This is uncharted times in California. Not much rain but summer weather in the winter. I wonder how long it will bloom. Bill

Bill- not surprised at your psycho :). Did you check out the weather for the following week??? It's not going to stop blooming any time soon. That's great!! Gotta stop by and pay a visit this spring if I may :-)

Thanks Mike and Rox. Chuy, you are always welcome- always great to see you. Usually spring is not too great with the late starts in So. Cal but who knows what will happen this year.

Hi Bill!

This is news that made me smile this morning!! It just doesn't surprise me if Psycho doesnt even blink for winter! This tree has a mind of its own and just wants to grow like there is no tomorrow!!!

You all have had a mild winter while we in the east, have had more snow and frigid temps then ever before. Just last night I was walking like a penguin to keep from falling up north. It's awful... But I know your flip flops are getting plenty of use, while our snow boots are the preferred choice!

I can't wait for warm weather. I'm so cold!!!!!

So I guess we would have lost the contest this year on the last bloom ?
Lol!

Take care !

Laura

Hi Bill, your Psycho is as impressive as always. This warm winter weather has allowed my CA Sunset to keep blooming. It still has most of its leaves, 6 old inflos (two of which are still producing new buds all the time) and 5 new inflos. All the tips are shiny and ready to go.
I figure, if we can't have any rain, we might as well enjoy the sunshine ....

BTW, this plant is about 3 by 3 feet and has only been in the ground for two years.

Must be related to my neighbor's "Gardena." It didn't go dormant or stop blooming... Here it is this morning...

Looks like mine. Even though I cut it back significantly, it has tripled the number of blooms with new ones every day. I wonder if it will go all year or what. This is an interesting winter.
