I agree the colors of this one aren’t
distinctive. I liked the BALCS
seedling much better. I know what
you mean about not getting your hopes up for something with poor stalks and bud
count. Yet I have a regret over one I trashed six weeks ago. It was the brightest, most unusual color
pattern in the whole field. Weak as
it was, I should have kept it to see what it would do.

the Night X Wild Card
Another one that my visitor liked that I had been
bloom. It has great height, bud count,
reasonably good branching and
bud placement, health to suit me, but seems like a
dime a dozen bloom.
Would appreciate comments on this one too.
It's the result of my misunderstanding some early
umbrata, luminata, & plicata heredity.
Chuck suggested I try some kind
of cross that I thought was umbrata x
plicata. INTO THE NIGHT was the
only fertile umbrata and WILD CARD the only
fertile plicata at the time,
broken color was just what I had - no intent
for broken color kids.
Thanks for all the positive feedback on the BALCS
definitely line that one out for more evaluation.
