The shrub in the top photo is blooming two weeks later than the one below (2012). They were grown from seed, which will produce a more genetically diverse selection of plants. That’s a good thing – it provides adaptability and preserves genes that might confer survival on plants in the event of a pest or disease outbreak, or climate change.
