Thanks for the good wishes, Donald.
I know for me that seedling represents many, many
hours and countless attempted crosses! <big grin>
I'm not getting my hopes up too much about saving it,
but it's gonna have to rot in place, before I'll
remove it, that's for sure.
I still am puzzled by its lack of cresting. But it
certainly appears to have some other tectorum traits:
the flared standards and relatively broad anthers
(which also surprisingly seem to have a little bit of
pollen). I'll be saving what I can of that pollen.
Thanks again, Tom
