Scarlet tried to bloom but every flower was disfigured by mites so I finally gave up and cut every stem off. It's done for the year. Belle and M Red are also done but I've allowed Red to open one last flower but cut off all others. Both Belle and M Red were very floriferous for a first year plant, they had lots of buds. I'm really hoping that they overwinter. Next year I hope to add a couple more of Sun, Belle and M Red. Since M Yellow didn't look so great I'm not adding another.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.
