Keysguy: I can't guarantee performance as far south as you are. I did notice that several of the Hawaiian clones were blooming randomly throughout the NJ summer, though with limited flower count (6-10 flowers/inflorescence). The ones that budded up later (blooming now) tend to have much higher flower counts.

The seedlings I have grown from plugs are just giving me their first real flush of spikes now. I have seen very good flower count from (Yai x Donovan); I am still evaluating the other crosses.

Dolly: It is warmer in NJ than in northern IN (I have spent a lot of time in Fort Wayne, so I am familiar with IN weather). I am certain that they would perform well in your area.

Thanks, Kim! Let us know.

It's the temperature differential we sometimes have trouble with. But, I have a plan for next year.

Outdoors you will get the temperature difference in September and into early October.

Some years. In 2019 we didn't get enough. This fall it came early but, apparently wasn't enough or I didn't leave them out long enough. Roberta and I talked about it and I thought I had it nailed but, I've only had two bloom so far.

Even though half of my collection is 'warmth tolerant', I leave all of the plants outside untill we see night time temps below 33-34F (and in 2019 they actually experienced a touch of frost, when 33F predicted turned into 30-31F in reality).

With that treatment, the mature plants bud up well.

I did have another problem this year though. The field mice ate a lot of buds that were in the 1-3" stage.

That's about my cut off. Several of these plants were divided last year and that may be why. Although my warmth tolerant minis aren't budded either. Growing like weeds though.

When I had my plants in NH I had several large standard Cyms. They spent the summer on the front stoop of the house which faced east and got maybe 2 hours of early morning sun and then dappled sun through noon. I left them right out there until there was a frost warning and most had spikes started when I did finally move them back into the greenhouse.

They were very showy but man did they ever get huge!
