This is a re-send, because the original inadvertantly attached too-large photos.

Mary Lou  --  That's a much better growth of STARRING than I'm able to achieve.  Here, it hardly grows above border bearded height, and it's hard to keep.  Like you, I've had no pods on it, but it's a good pollen producer, and I have several seedlings from it.  One of those is ROMANIA, ROMANIA, registered last year.
>Got any more pictures, Griff?<
Do dogs have fleas?  This is 20D11 (Aura Light X Lumalite), an intermediate.  I like its double ring and the center stripe.  I have a pod on it from Don Spoon's RED RABBIT.  It's a small pod, and I just had to harvest it early, so I hope there'll be seeds.  The excess rainfall here has been keeping pods green, but taking its toll on stalks.  Normally, I would have harvested most of the SDB and Intermediate pods by now.
I'd also like to post some assorted seedlings that I'm just now selecting.  At the moment, I'm waiting for late contractors to arrive (a chronic problem in the DC area) when I should be out in the garden.  So, I may have an opportunity.  Stand by (but don't hold your breath, please).  --  Griff

The white over dark red in the foreground is Starring.
Planted in 05. Bloomed below knee-level in 06 and 07.
With a long, slow warm up and lots of rain this spring,
it made it to 32 inches.
Have not been able to set a pod on it, but have
Bonus Mama X Starring seedlings big enough to bloom
this fall.
Got any more pictures, Griff?
Mary Lou, near Indianapolis, Z5 - northeast side, not
near the worst flooding!
