RANKED BY AVERAGE BUD COUNT PER SCAPE (Stem)

Information is based on annual surveys of our beds. Buds per scape indicate the intensity of color (multiple blooms per day) during a plant's bloom period. Bud counts influence the elapsed time in bloom, too, along with multiple scapes per plant and climate. High bud counts, alone, are no guarantee of long bloom periods.
