Can anyone ID this unknown 7Y-Y in bloom now in middle Tennessee? It was mislabeled as a tazetta in a local garden and I’m trying to help them ID it.
Thanks, Becky Fox Matthews that daffy girl near Nashville

    Looks like Sweetness. Normally it only has one bloom to a stem. If it is really healthy and likes the soil it will have two to three blooms but that is really rare.
    Older variety from the 1920’s very prolific, if you look close at the foliage it will show signs of one or more virus infections. The less strains of virus it contains the more blooms and better multiplying that particular grouping will be. Tall bloom stalks when in full bloom but will begin opening well down in the foliage but the stems will rapidly grow and raise the head of the bloom several inches above the tops of the foliage. Rainy morning finally here in East Texas. Keith Kridler
