Thanks to reminding me about the other colours!
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 obtained!
There will be many pods from it next spring!
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!

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 well.

Attached is a seedling from "cloud shadows" X DIGNITY DANCER, showing
the strong yellow it can produce. In a variegata pattern. And a pink
seedling from an experiment with a cross using a weedy, very retro,
muddy looking yellow bee seedling from PINK FORMAL.

From the pedigree, looks like the MTB cross might give you some of the
super floriferousness (is that a word??) that you want.
