Re: CULT comments requested on seedling 2
All of the bloom photos are lovely, but as hard as it is to comment on a
seedling without seeing it in the garden a few times, it seems impossible
without at least some more info on growth. Bud count, branching, number of
bloomstalks, year of bloom, that sort of stuff... Otherwise, aren't we just
commenting on a single bloom pic?
I absolutely adored Merlse and Linda's seedling pic #01-141a and I actually
like somewhat smaller blooms. But if it had also said something like average
bud counts, good branching and average increase, THEN I would have begged for
them to introduce it!
I have always leaned heavily towards the point of view that a seedling
without an improvement or distinction is "just another good plic" or
whatever, useful perhaps in more breeding but not worthy of introduction. And
the pile of all my own seedling discards in the compost bin seems to confirm
this. So you may want to take all this with a grain of salt because my view
point is skewed a little...
My words are mine, and don't reflect the views of my employer.
