"Nicer" form on blooms, but what about "nicer" health of foliage? Seems
like the vegetative traits come thru more strongly from the pod parent,
whether that's flower form or foliage.
Either fall pollen is puny here or, more likely, my attempts at saving
pollen haven't had the required skill. No luck so far.
Nice looking, Mary Lou. Ditto SR X OCT SPLENDOR

Betty is right - you get nicer things using Immortality as pollen
parent. Immortality produces lots of pollen on fall bloom.
It's always about the weather.

back when I was working & hung around with some of the carbon modelers,
some of the global climate models were predicting a big increase in
range of climate events :-(
