Does PEACH SPOT
Linda, I can answer some of your questions about PS.
From three rhizomes of PS I had 10 or 12 stalks, in 1987. This was it's prettiest year. It looked like a clump of butterflies. I remember it being scant on foliage that year as the short stalks seemed to almost rise from the ground.
According to my records, I set pods on 9 of those stalks, and about as many using the pollen. It gave a number of vigorous plants. It tends to give low bud count when used as pod parent.
In my judgement, it gave prettier seedlings when used as a pollen plant, but I did like several seedlings with PS by Vanity. There were a couple of excellent, but short seedlings from a cross with ORANGE STAR. Got an orange amoena from this one.
Dave Niswonger used it in CHAMPAGNE ELEGANCE. I believe it's also in the backgound of several of his other pink amoenas and pinks. I got a couple of rebloomers (yellow amoenas) when I used CE on Immortality.
I got one seedling that rebloomed, one time, from PEACH SPOT X HIGHLAND CHIEF. But both are only carriers or CA rebloomers at best. I had PS for years but, don't see anything in my records where I used it directly with stronger rebloomers. Sorry.
