Colleen  --  While trying to tidy up the inbox, I ran across this earlier message that I had saved to answer at a less busy time.  You mention the things that set this orange seedling apart from other oranges.  Those are things which, as far as I am concerned, count toward introduction or, at least, use in further hybridizing.  You didn't mention the near-lacy edges of the petals  --  another plus.  The more choices we have on the market, the better, sez I.  --  Griff

Your right, nice colours, but does look rather 80ish.
The question, is it somehow better or different than what's already out
there. Does it rebloom, bloom very early, very late, have a very high
bud count, colour break. I'm considering releasing this one next year.
The main thing that sets this one apart from other oranges, is that it
flowers well before another bright orange that I know. Good bud count,
grows and flowers well but stems not a straight as I would like. I'd
appreciate your comments
