Rherma, we are happy for you. Patience is the name of the game. You will look back at this after you have accumulated hundreds and LAUGH. I have a few years in this DL "thingy". I can see mine coming along. LOL!
Patience is key. I've been going out every morning and evening to see if anything has bloomed...haha. I checked this a.m. and I have another one blooming, "Eagles on High" which was a gift plant with one of my recent orders. I'll post a picture of that one tonight.
Several has bloomed for the first time in the last couple weeks including some that I got within the last two months. Freewheelin surprised me this morning. What a big bloom. Pics are coming as soon as I get the time. Mike
Nice! It is to be expected that the height and diameter of the bloom will be smaller than what it's registered at, as it's still settling in. Should be correct height and diameter next year. Then it the third year it will really shine!
