I checked your photo ('m on digest) and the photos of the two parents.
The sdlg has lovely form and colour. I do like it. Of note is that if
one ofthe parents had dominant reduction of anthocyanin gene ("I" gene)
then you would get some seedlings with this colour. Also of note is the
small "aril" type darker spot on falls. This would suggest to me 1/4
aril blood. If it doesn't fit well with sibs in form etc, then it could
indeed be a stray seed, but it would likely be a stray 1/4 aril seed.

Supposed to be a cross of ASHLEIGH NICOLE X KIOSK. That would make it an
OGB- type AB seedling. Can't be correct. Certainly that's what was
in the pot where this appeared, but a mouse, bird, squirrel or something
must have relocated another seed. Going to the trash heap when it
blooming. I have doubts sometimes about what I see, but here it's total
disbelief. May still be an OGB- type, but not from those parents. In any
case the plant hasn't fared well. This is the first year the blooms
been frozen and deformed. I've known from the beginning it probably
correct for what it was supposed to be, but I wanted to see a normal
before I got rid of it. Yea! A bit more space will be available.
