I'm not exactly sure what to expect from the babies from the cross of
these two seedlings, but there are about 30 healthy babies coming along
from this winter's sprouts.
pod parent is 'big brown' - cream with brown blotch
pollen parent is 'IC1Seak' - bluepurple sort of zonal
'big brown' = (Final Episode X white Aug rebloomer: (Tea Leaves x
Matrix)). It has not rebloomed so far, old enough to have had a chance
"IC1Seak" = "cloud shadows" amoena cycle rebloomer:(Immortality x
Celebration Song) X Seakist. No rebloom, old enough, but not a super
My guess is that most of these will have some kind of patterning on the
falls, with ground color either white, cream, or bluepurple, and various
blotches or brown or white streaks.
With more than 30 seedlings that look strong and healthy, maybe an
outside chance of one being a rebloomer, but mostly going for some
color/pattern variety with this cross. 'cloud shadows' readily produces
pink babies, so I'm assuming it carries 3 copies of tangerine factor.
Harvest of Memories X Seakist produced one tangerine bearded seedling,
so there are some pink genes floating around in there, plus some pink in
background of Sky Hooks. Very unlikely there's enough on either side
for any pink to show up.
Any of you care to venture a guess as to what colors/patterns will come
from the cross of these two?
