It was a very long wait for flowers on quinquefolium. I asked Wada when mine would flower and he said "corky bark, corky bark". As predicted when the bark got corky the flower bud set.  Only one that first year.

Good grief!  Sending in order right now for industrial  quantities of smelling salts to be distributed to forumists as urgent treatment.

I bypassed the bottle of smelling salts and went straight for the Scotch. ;D

You have a lot of nice plants, johnw!

The cross between Rh edgewothii and dendrocharis called 'Plover' has survived the last two very cold winters well but did not flower this spring .

The "second" flowering of this roxieanum is something!
