Blessed Again comes true to her name in my garden. I've planted three tiny bad quality tubers in spring 2005. Only two survived after moving into another house and so in my new garden. This late spring she has flowered for me the first time. And now, mid summer, she's flowering again for me. Just with so many buds as ever. What a surprise! I hope she'll do this for me every year..but I gues... I'm just lucky. This summer has been awfull wet and cold. Summer has'nt arrived yet overhere..so she did 'nt have the best circumstances to flower. She's good scented...in the evening I can smell her from a distance..lovely vanilla scent..really nice!
