Beautiful orange color and nice plant. Mine are not blooming yet and I don't know if they will but that's ok. Next year though.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Perfect plant with no blemishes from insects on the leaves.

You're right Vicki, I think it's because it's along the driveway where it is very dry and away from any moisture, bushes, and shade. The only bug I see on them there are bees.

I'm surprised that I am the only one here with a blooming one...way up here in WI. My plants were very quite small when I got them.

That's what those long days will do for you. Everyone else is at much lower latitudes.

Any flowers yet Bob? Here is an updated shot of the same plant 15 days later. Fair amount of fading but still looks nice. The incredible color they are early on is worth it I think. Here is also one newly opened. The color is so saturated, love it.

One bud should open this week on one plant. The plants themselves look great and if they continue to grow like they have so far both should be magnificent next year. I can't wait to see a flower. Big Grin

Here is Julia's first bloom along with orange Cheyenne Spirit for comparison purposes. Even though Julia is pretty it doesn't compare to the deep orange of Cheyenne Spirit. The pics of CS are 3 weeks apart with the first one on Aug. 15th and the 2nd one taken Wednesday. Julia is from yesterday also. So far Julia isn't any larger or even as large a bloom as some of my other plants. This bloom is now on its 3rd day of being open, with Wednesday being day 2. This is Julia #1 and it has several more buds set to open soon. #2 is a week or so behind #1 but has buds. The color on Julia in this picture is deeper than what you actually see in real life but isn't enhanced in any way. It has brightened up a lot since day one though I doubt that it will match CS for intensity.

I think I'll stick with Cheyenne Spirit. They just have better breeding in their seeds than anyone!

Julia in those photos reminds me of Tomato Soup.

Tomato Soup isn't as good as Julia by a long shot but Julia, so far, along with Cleopatra, are a bit of a letdown compared to CS and others. I'll withhold judgment on both of them until they've had a second season of growth. Julia isn't an ugly flower by any means but it just doesn't compare to Cheyenne Spirit. Tomato Soup has been a huge disappointment.

I think I like the pointed petals of Cheyenne Spirit. I like the way they stick straight out without flopping down.

I have a pink hybrid with large droopy petals that has become my favorite pink but I agree that straight petals are nice, especially on these.

Here is a photo from early evening today of Julia, with a bit of "makeup". She is quite beautiful in this photo and compares favorably to most any other orange.

Good one Bob. That would look good as a painting and framed!
