In my location the R. bifida always starts blooming with the first rains of autumn, generally around the first part of September. Lin in Texas (these are in Quitman in east Texas) -----Original Message----- Rhodophiala bifida has been mentioned in two recent posts. It's blooming now here in Maryland. It struck me as unexpected that it would be blooming for Lin in Texas now at the same time it is blooming here in Maryland. Where else is it blooming now?
