Those are nice seedlings, Donald.I particularly like the one on the right. That deep blue does look like Yaquina Blue.

I call this bunch my 'Schreiner blues'. The pod
parent was BREAKERS and I used both YAQUINA BLUE and NAVAJO JEWEL on the
bloom that set the pod. The color is more in line with YB, so I think that is
the probable paternal parent. They've done well since their first
year. They aren't what I'm interested in working with, but they've put on
such a good show they survived tossing yet another season. This
was the third year for bloom and it was the poorest for them. For every stalk
shown, there were two stalks wiped out by the late freezes this year.
Still a good show in a bad year.
