I wasn't going to post this seedling because it is pretty
narrow, but I thought I'd get some imput. This is its
maiden bloom, it opened July 2nd. When I look at it, I am
inclined to ignore it, but then I wonder if I may be making
things more difficult for myself if I do. Its certainly
not introducible, but may be of more interest as a parent
than I am giving it credit for.
Aunt Mary (Stanek 00) is a nice plicata that reblooms
here. There are so many violet plicatas that will rebloom
here that I didn't cross it to a plicata which explains the
rather odd cross.
So here's what my intial impressions are: indifferent
color, narrow form, acceptable stalk (there is a branch
lower that doesn't show up really well in the shot) bud
count of 8, questionable bloom time for rebloom -assuming
this isn't a one time out of season bloom- though it was
able to form this stalk through humid mid 90's temps. It
has a second stalk that isn't fairing quite as well. Plant
health is good. Flower size is above average for the other
seedlings from rebloom crosses. I would think that it would
have a little better branching in spring conditions.
Substance is decent.
I'll post some of its sibs too.
I imagine I'll watch it for another year at least, but was
wondering what you all might think.
