woohooo!! This is year 3 for this H. coccineum "Flaming Torch". It got bigger every year, but ...nothin' at all bloom-wise.

Until this week. ... Tadaaaa!
:-D That's a very big smile on my face.

Anyone else had a "Finally!!!" moment this season?

It's about 4 and 1/2 feet or so. It has a very light scent. (So happy! :-> )

First time bloomers for me this yr, are Kinkaku. Dr. Moy and Peach Delight have first time inflos but no blooms yet. At least a dozen hedys that are new or haven't bloomed yet.
It's been the year of the crinum though for me, almost all my crinum have bloomed. Probably if I didn't have some of those big honkin' clumps I would have room for hedys!
Congrats on your Flaming Torch!

Nice picture, Deb! I've been cutting them and bringing them inside to bloom. They smell so good. Here's one of mine that looks like yours.

Clare: Beautiful! That first one does look the same. I dream of lots of blooms like yours! My "Moy Giant" is going to have more than one bloom for the first time this year. (yay)
The Heddy that I started this thread with has had only that one bloom, tho. The other stalks, and there are lots of them, are just growing bigger and bigger. :) No complaints tho - since there was a time when I thought I'd never see anything but green from that one! LOL.

Deb, I really like your pictures. You have a very good eye. That's a lovely ginger too. I think there is a possibility that you may see more blooms later in the summer. This is very early for my gingers to bloom. They usually bloom toward the end of the summer and through the fall here. I still have a lot of them that haven't bloomed yet.

Clare - I am experiencing the same with the early bloom. This one is fully opened now, with 3 others in various stages nearby. I moved this to an area where it gets morning sun; the patch that I have in the backyard with afternoon sun doesn't bloom until Oct/Nov.

That's a pretty picture. It's really weird that all my pinks and yellows are blooming this early, but it is nice to have them. The whites are in the patch and haven't bloomed yet, but I bet those will bloom at the regular time.

I have several 'Finallys' in the yard now, but they are just buds. Still, I do my happy dance when I see one! (OT-Most of my new camellias are full of buds!)

Congrats on your camellias, Lussah! I can't believe it's almost camellia season.
Looking forward to seeing your "finally"s. :)
