Long Time No See
Back in 1998 I planted 5 Texas Flame tulips. They all bloomed the following spring. The next spring two weakly bloomed. A few years after that 1 bloomed. Then nothing but greenery - until this spring when all 5 bloomed as if I had just planted them last fall!
These daffodils I planted in 1998 as well. They bloomed the following spring and then only sent up leaves every spring after that, until this spring when the whole bunch bloomed again!
I planted this Estella Rijnveld (actually 3 of them) in 1998. They bloomed the following spring, then nothing but leaves until this spring. Only one, but still...
These daffodils, yeah, you guessed it - 1998. Bloomed the following spring and then not again until this spring.
I also had daffodils, Salome - supposed to be naturalizing daffodils by the way, that I planted over 5 years ago, that didn't even bloom the spring following planting-- in fact they never bloomed, until this spring!
It must have been a great year for bulbs!
