What's Blooming today? June 11
Oh, my, what a surprise. I have been waiting for Jamie Gossard's Heaven Dragon Fire to bloom for the first time since I won it on the LA last year and look what I was rewarded with!
1. Heavenly Dragon Fire poly
2. The poly with a single
3 Black Falcon Ritual
4. Westbourne Mom's Curtain Ruffles (after a sprinkling)
5. Belle of Ashwood
I dropped my camera, ughhh :-( , so I am using my phone and the colors all look so washed out, esp. Curtain Ruffles and Belle of Ashwood. Sorry because they ARE so beautiful.
That was worth the wait and a 5 petal poly at that. Beautiful! Your other pictures look good to me too.
Oh, I have only seen othershere write about "poly" blooms. I've never seen one and didn't know there were different kinds. I just knew this one had "extras" and that was good enough to have me think I had a poly, too. Thanks for your post. Any info would be so appreciated.
I've seen as many as six petals and six sepals. Most are 4 of each. I had a real beauty on So Many Stars a couple years ago. It had five of each and really looked like a star.
That heavenly dragon fire is beautiful, and love the Black Falcon Ritual as well. Love the Indian Giver, Larry Grace and Midnight Raider. The Midnight Raider is one of my new additions maybe I will see some blooms next year!! They are all so beautiful.
It is RAINING here today!! It has been so bone dry and we had a huge lightening storm that lasted for several hours last night. But it eventually started raining and is still raining some. It has been a long time since we had a nice rain and I am sure the DLs were enjoying the soaking!!
Thanks everyone for sharing your beautiful blooms. Had this FFO (and my first bloom ever on this plant) from Westborne Corn Crib.... please excuse the bermuda grass! I battle it and the nut sedge on a continual basis!!
Love Milk Chocolate and Primal Scream =). I think I've picked those out before!
