Early, Mid, Late refers to the bloom season. In this country early is usually mid to late June, Mid is July and Late is anytime up to the end of August, (or later) if you are lucky.
Reblooming is a real bonus and is common in a lot of the cultivars offered. This gives a completely new set of flower scapes after the main bloom period. A distinct plus!
The first measurement in the description is the approximate height of the cultivar, the second measurement is the approximate width of the bloom. Be warned sometimes the hybridisers may exaggerate and also the plants do not always perform quite as spectacularly in this country oh for the heat of the Southern States. Was 2003 an exception or have we great things to look forward to.
