    Thanks for the beautiful photos.  Little Drummer Boy is a real favorite here in eastern Washington State.  I have some seedlings up from (Little Drummer Boy x Suslik).  Your little intro. Lesser Goldfinch is just about ready to finish blooming here.  I made some crosses with it, and I have dried some of its pollen to use in a few weeks with I. stolonifera.  I crossed Lesser Goldfinch and your pumila B-3-B and had a beautiful bloom on one of the seedlings last week.  The I. pumila Blazek #4 I bought from you last year just bloomed and is stunning.  In all, I have around 25 named I. pumila hybrids and I. pumila seedlings blooming.  They really warm the heart!
