Thanks to reminding me about the other
But i am only starting using your baby, and let me
tell you, by the way it has survived the 5 weeks of heavy frost this winter, i
am not ready to stop!
It is a great grower!
I'll keep in mind what you have already
There will be many pods from it next
Thanks again for sending it to me!
Floriferousness is the word, yes, and it is what i
am after, as long as they don't open all at the same time, the branching is wide
enough to accommodate them, and that they are not too big and fleshy so
they die and vanish graciously.
i really count on the MTB for that!

from "cloud shadows"
Aww, I'm almost a grandmother ;-)
Don't forget, "cloud shadows" also
gives pink or yellow seedlings in the
right kind of cross. I've gotten a
few pink or yellow amoenas from some
of its siblings, but haven't had the
right kind of crosses to know if it
can produce them as
Attached is a seedling from "cloud shadows" X DIGNITY DANCER,
the strong yellow it can produce. In a variegata pattern. And a
seedling from an experiment with a cross using a weedy, very retro,
muddy looking yellow bee seedling from PINK FORMAL.
pedigree, looks like the MTB cross might give you some of the
floriferousness (is that a word??) that you want.
