Greetings, Bloom timing varies in much smaller scales. I'm a few miles and a few hundred meters below you, in south Berkeley, and my B. josephinae put up one bloom a month ago. Then, quite to my surprise, a second stalk emerged from the same bulb 2 weeks after is just starting to open flowers now. -|<ipp > Date: Thu, 21 Aug 2014 11:08:09 -0700 > From: firstname.lastname@example.org > > Interesting timing.
