HI Adam, and all- you are correct-3 stalks, I was so excited I couldn't count LOL. Yes, it is a Chubby Cheeks kid-it is amazing the color patterns that CC can produce in it's seedlings.
It has some rebloom in background, but not anything I expect will show in this cross-but worthy of further use.
Yes, Loic I have completed MDB bloom, am about half way through SDB, IB blooming, and BB's showing some color. Also, a few early TB-RB with stalks up and open-Priscilla of Corinth, Innocent Star, Double Shot, Juicy Fruit.
It is going to be a great bloom season here. Have many more seedling photos to post, including more of yours.
Thanks for your comments.

Nice find in the seedlings! Is 'Chubby Cheeks' in it's pedigree?? :-) I like your seedling!
Looks to me like it has 3 stalks in the photo. . .
Spring is in here and bloom is well underway-this is one of my favorite 2009 seedlings. Maiden bloom-3 rhizomes, 2 bloom stalks, 3 buds per stalk. Is a sdb x ib cross. Colorful, good substance, stood up well to wind and rain for 3 days.
