  • TB 'Pink Angel' bloomed approximately June 21-26, in 2017. There was only one bloom stalk that bloomed from a small clump of 5 rhizomes, and it was a short stalk. This could have been due to an excess of moisture, or it may have been thinned and replanted in 2016. -- HollyJohnson2017 -04-01 - 21 Sep 2017
