Will be in peak bloom in a week. I am amazed how poor some of the foliage has gotten. Most of my hybrids have good underlying foliage but many of the more "fancy" plants have die off foliage.

Starting to get many hybrid blossoms. Also I note that some hybrids have horrible foliage. It dies off and detracts from the plant. I have many Apps based hybrids with strong and lasting foliage that provides an attractive basis for the flowering. Some hybridizers focus on a flower and miss the entire plant.

Yes, quite hot. But the flowers seem to love it. What I have been noticing is that some of my classic crosses thrive with good foliage and lots of strong blooms. Many have Apps heritage. However almost all of the recent fancy ones have horrible foliage and weak blooms.

H dumortieri has bloomed. I had almost lost this plant due to a quack grass infestation and a planting in an already heavily planted garden. Note the sepal colors on the outside, a brownish as well as the buds.
