Rain, rain, rain Sad , is spoiling much of the bloom, but, here's few that look "OK", this morning.
Thumb of 2019-05-09/crowrita1/48c3c8
this one is tagged as "Blue Pools", but I haven't taken the time to check for accuracy....It's the first I have seen it bloom.

Cherokee Daybreak joins the list as one that needs division !

It absolutely goes nuts. Tom ! Admittedly, I reset a fairly good chunk, but, it more than doubled in growth. There are quite a few SDB's that really amaze me with their growth rate, their reliability to bloom, and their general "resistance " to leaf spot and rot.

Rocket (Whiting 1945) this one is doing exceptionally well, this year. I've had it quite a while, and have only seen a few blooms, but it must have decided to "put on a show", this year Shrug!
