What a difference some days make!

In my last post, I'd questioned if a seedling was one I had seen flowering last fall. Since then, it has been potted into the next size larger can and fed. Now there are two buds about to open and one open flower. Keep in mind it has been mid nineties to low triple digits here for the past three days. Humidity during the day has been single digit and the wind has been pretty constant any time the sun has shone. The cross is a very healthy mini breeder Jim Sproul shared with me, using pollen from my 1-72-1Hugonis hybrid. I'm very pleased with what I see so far! There are definitely some Hugonis genes in the plant and it repeats!


  1. Lovely colour, simple form, beautiful contrast of red and gold. Made my day!
