Plants That Are Flowering Twice in a Year
I have buds on my camellias and my rhododendrons. Would these be flower buds or seed buds? My plants flowered in late spring, early summer. Also, my delphiniums have flowered again for the second time this year. I cut them down after they finished flowering in the summer, but they have grown again.
