Thanks, El, I thought it was nice too but I don't think it's going to be very hardy. It only had one bloom. But it grew and bloomed here in Texas. Not many of the SDB's do.

I especially like the one you've labeled as SDB seedling, Pearl.

<I don't find it fertile tho, how about you?

<i. germanica> About 4 years ago I ended up with 4 bee pods one of them on i. germanica. I don't do any hybridizing but planted them just to see what I might get. The first one to bloom was from i. germanica. It is the blue seedling below. I had no idea what the other parent might be until the second one bloomed. It was an SDB. (see below) The only SDB I had blooming that year was Gentle Grace so I am assuming that must be the pollen parent. The blue seedling, while pretty, only had three blooms. The little SDB had only one.
I have a yellow seedling from a beepod the same year that came from an historical that might be Alta California. I have no idea what the other parent might be on this one but it has 7 blooms on the first stalk. That is unusual for me. Even on the newer better hybrids, I rarely get more than 5 blooms. The other bee pods each have a bud so I'll have to wait to see.
