My L. radiata var. pumila are in full bloom, too, not expecting the var. 
radiata for another week or so. I guess I'm amazed that you are 
successfully growing them without protection. I must admit I've not 
tried to grow them without winter protection, but maybe I could???

Are yours on a south slope or wall?
