Re: HYB: Pink Attraction X Romantic Evening seedlings

Branching and bud count was fine on the darker seedling 03 
59B.  I was most worried about the substance and flower 
size.  In general, this cross wasn't very tall, and had 
medium sized blooms.  There were a lot of triple socketed 
stalks, so bud count was acceptible, but hopefully there 
will be more spurs on subsequent bloom. 

If I had known that it took 1000 seedlings to get Pink 
Attraction, I may have used it much more sparingly.  I had 
this theory that dragging the rebloom in with a pink that 
rebloomed reliably here would make it easier to get rebloom 
into other patterns.  We'll see.   Hopefully some of these 
will rebloom, they were the fastest increasers of the 
seedlings planted last year.
