Margie  --  I have a pod on HAUNTING, which is a rebloomer,  from 032G2.  Although I have pollinated it and pollinated from it extensively, nothing else has "taken".  As a matter of fact, I've experienced fewer than 5% takes out of the many dozens of crosses I've made so far.  I've never had such a discouraging year.  I can only guess that the weather is the cause.  Varieties which commonly are multiple pod producers are barren this year.  There's a bright spot here and there, but they are few.  --  Griff

What are your future plans for this one?  Have you used it in any crosses?

I don't think so, Margie.  But, happily, its blooms are long-lasting.  The clump began blooming on May 8 and is still blooming.  --  Griff

That's pretty nice, Griff.  :-) Are you hoping for rebloom on this one?

Here's my personal favorite among this year's maiden bloomers: 032G2  (20P8:(Titan's Glory x G95W2:(Holy Night x Sweeter Than Wine)) x STARRING).  31", velvety falls, 7 buds.   --   Griff
