HYB: Rims and bands

  • Subject: HYB: Rims and bands

Still have lots of bloom, very late this year due to cool weather.  Been working on bands, rims and bleeds for several years now and am starting to see some nice results. 
first flower has 14 buds and is nice and tall so the flowers aren't bunched.  Been blooming since the first of April and is still going with a few buds left to open.  Second flower is a SA (which I don't try for anymore, they are just in our lines) with 9 to 11 buds.  I am really drawn to the double banded or bleeding flowers with starbursts.  Probably just personal preference but they seem striking to me.  Problem for me is that there are so many bleeds and bursts in the garden now that they are starting to look a little old.....one of the hazards of hybridizing.
