Title: Fast flowering trifoliata.
Post by: Laaz on June 13, 2019, 08:12:39 AM
This is a first, but you know how they say water stress will promote blooming. We hadn't had rain here in over a month, now it has rained for almost a week straight... Well, my inground as well as my seedling fast tri plants are all re blooming. First for everything I guess. I'll get photos when I can.

So neat. I like seeing those orange blossoms. I read somewhere that one of the French kings loved orange blossoms and kept citrus in pots in a greenhouse and would periodically stress them by withholding water for a while then watered them and the trees would bloom again.

The mother plant is about 15 years old. The seedlings are a year old.
