Is FTS Archangel sterile?

by yabbie » Tue May 22, 2018 5:40 pm

Hello everyone,
I let one of my FTS Archangel flower this spring, but as the buds swell, I found they never bloom.
The buds keep their shape round, white petals huddle together, wrinkled, like cabbage. But the calyxes do expand as normal.
I disclosed two of them, and found the stamens and pistil huddling too. The color of pistil is red, unlike typical cultivar.
So, I'd like to verify, whether FTS Archangel is a sterile cultivar or not?

ps: Sorry I'm not an English speaker, I wish I had made myself clear.
Thanks.

My FTS Archangel flowers regularly and produces seed. It does have a red stamen too.

A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in--what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.

Nice pic!
So what's wrong with my flowers? Never seen like this before.
