Let us all know if crosses made with these plants give a take.

None of these have rebloom potential, but at least the buds didn't turn
brown and dry up after the freeze.
The most 'normal' looking one is from HoM X BRILLIANT DISGUISE, has
breeding potential. Showing color when the freeze hit, & while damaged,
not as badly as the others. Unlike a lot of HoM kids, large bloom,
decent width (last year), and while pale, it is a variegata. Good
branching & height. Definitely will pot this one for next year.
The 'pink' bearded white is from 32IMMxCSONG (t bearded white that I'm
pretty sure finally died during last summer's drought - never was
strong) X ALL MY DREAMS. Plant looks reasonably strong & good increase,
The yellow-orangish? amoena with the big fall spot is probably too far
from rebloom ancestry to be any use - ((IMMxCSONG) x (GOLDEN APPLE x
CRYSTAL GLITTERS)) X CORAL BEAUTY. Strong plant.
