This seedling was a big surprise. I certainly did not expect a plicata from Rosalie Figge, much less one with the yellow ground from Gladiatrix. It was a fall cross made in 04. This seedling tried to bloom in the fall of 07, but was frozen out. The first stalk has a bud count of 10, the other much less. Good height. Substance needs some work. Strong grower here. No SA traits noted.
I know that Rosalie Figge is a difficult parent for many of you, but I think it may prove worth the effort. So far I have been able to get height and bud count from it. AND some of the seedlings do produce pollen.
