Shindig has given Awake, Mambo,
Rumble, Storm Song, Tickle the Ivories, Whydidi.
Terse Verse has given Guise,
More Drama, Posing and Uppity.
Many of these have gone on to produce lovely seedlings, with good
substance, lovely flower form and interesting colouration. I have had AB
crosses with Hum & It's A Giggle, nice seedlings from Celcius, and
plenty in the making from most of the others.
I also have pods on PINK PELE this year and have used Cat's Eyes
extensively on SDB's IB's & TB's as it is very fertile and has a good spot
pattern, and I love the colour.
Flavours, from (Zing Me X Knight Templar),
Ingenious, from (Zing Me X
Lyrique, from (Zing Me X
Zingerado, from ( Zing Me x
Zinglet, from Zing Me X
These are the ones that lose fertility in the second generation. I
have set pods on Ingenious & Lyrique, with a few seeds to the pod, and
fairly poor germination EXCEPT for those with an AB pod parent. (one of Sam
Fankhausers seedlings) I have had no success setting pods on their seedlings.
I will persist next year, as one of the AB crosses interests me.
I have had a little more success with Eye Wonder (Celcius X Aura Light)
but it doesn't seem to carry the spot pattern.
Attached are INGENIOUS X AB Seedling - I tried to set pods on the many
blooms, and failed. Barry suggested I just use lots of different pollens with
the hope of getting even one pod. No luck!
IRISH DARLING - another Barry Blyth IB exhibiting the spot pattern. I
will look up the cross when I can find the catalogue. This one bloomed in
winter, and I had no pollen to put on it.
