How was the width in the seedlings over all?  The pedigree of 
Zepherina looks like a potpourri of genetic potential.  Have you 
sibbed any of these?

First color showing on a Great Gatsby x Romantic Evening seedling--
the only one of the cross to bloom, thanks to excessive shade and 
early frosts.  Gatsby is a stellar performer here, with lots of good 
qualities to pass on judging from its pedigree.

I suspect flower size and haft width is to be watched in RE 
offspring.  The new *Tall Talk* articles by Blyth and Ghio both 
discuss quite frankly the problems in the lines leading up to RE.  We 
may all wade through a lot of potential compost to gain progress over 
Starring, Wild Wings, Firey Temper, Ocelot and the like.  The "big 
boys" have a bit of a head start here.

I like the color tone of your RE x Zepherina.  RE pod!  That's 
interesting to see.

I share your interest in the Ghio/Keppel form factors.....
