It's already half way there. There were a lot of these MACHO HOMBRE
seedlings and after malingering in pots for far too long, the ended up
simply being planted in the field. The soil there is somewhere between
adobe brick and fired red clay brick. The seedlings there were subject to
grasshoppers, occasional stomping by the cows, a steady dose of the dogs
taking shortcuts and ultimately the drought and incredible heat last summer.
A little more than half the things that got banished there simply died by
the end of the summer. Most of the survivors aren't going to bloom, but
several are. This is the first to bloom there. The color is strongly
reminiscent of the historic and widely distributed DANDY LYON, which is a
very strong, tough grower and always determined to bloom. Since the old
historic often gets a bad rap, I think I may move this one on out somewhere
in the acreage and see if it won't naturalize a bit. With some luck maybe
it will also prove to be a strong performer determined to bloom.
