I think you are talking about these sorts that I've been posting. You have
permission, but the original jpg files are huge! Did you want those?
I considered this cross the oddest cross I bloomed last year. The pod
parent (a darker, blue-purple than the photo shows with a small dark signal
that's not evident in the photo) is an attractive, large bloom on tall, very
snaky stalks. Surpassing Yellow is short and blooms on very straight stalks
despite having a large bloom. I wanted to see if I could split the
difference. With the median genes in Surpassing Yellow, I really didn't
expect a pod from the initial cross. It did, but the cross seemed
completely illogical between the two blooms. I really expected a lot of
mud. In fact, the experiment worked. The stalks were shorter and
straighter. Instead of mud, which in my mind is an unattractive blend that
is opaque, I got a smoky effect. All of
the blooms had it to some extent.
Because it was clear I didn't consider it muddy though the colors would have
been had they been opaque. I found the colors and patterns oddly attractive
and unusual. I hadn't planned on doing anything with them, but when I'm
walking around with the painter's brush and a container of pollen things
happen. I didn't expect much fertility here, but 5 of 6 seedlings set pods
and I saw the first sprouts this week from two of the pods. No idea what
they'll produce. They are something of a curiosity for me.
