Default Bloomin' Bordelon

Just wandered the yard and found my Bordelon with a pink flower poking out. I got a pup from Joe Rozier a little over a year ago. It vanished flat to the ground over the winter, but took off in late March.

I had no idea that they bloomed that fast, 4.5 months! Pictures are coming in the am.

That's amazingly fast! I think some of mine bloomed last year. They seem just to like to grow tall and not bother blooming for some reason.

Well cool that yours popped. I've always had some somewhere next to ornata since they are practically the same thing just different colours. It's a nice similar contrast.
