Yes, Paul, that’s the one.  I really think it is lovely.  If that were my seedling, I’d never toss it.  Of course, I am rather indifferent to the space age characteristics.  If a flower pleases me, I really don’t care whether or not it has horns.  If it doesn’t please me, no perfection of horns or flounces can rescue it.  That seedling seems to incorporate the exquisite pastel pink and blue of your medians, most of which won’t grow in the very hot country I live in.

I love this picture, Paul.  It’s a beautiful bi-color.  What is the lovely lavender-pink pastel just to the left of it?  I like than one even better.


> Francelle:   Thanks! I really liked that other flower also, until it started to do some funky stuff with the horns....not consistent at all...It seems that the spaceagers are very unstable in most of the seedlings...some worse than others...Many beautiful flowers were tossed because of this problem....I'm choosing to take the best of the crosses and breeding with them, knowing they are from the same mix, and hoping some of the same colors will reappear later in the seedlings to come, and hoping for better form and consistency... I'll include a close up of the flower that I think you are talking about....Paul
