For those of you who don't hybridize for arilbreds or who aren't familiar with them.....and even for those who just don't hybridize.....one  can never quite expect what the outcome will be.  So here are the photos to show you what happened with this cross.
The pod parent was my arilbred, King Solomon's Mines...OGB or 1/2 arilbred:
The pollen parent was Tom Black's small-flowered Spec-X TB, Dolce:
The resulting single seedling is KSMD1, below, which just bloomed for the first time.  It is a 1/4 arilbred, short, and I am now testing it for its pod and pollen fertility.  A 1/4 arilbred will most often be infertile or limitedly fertile.
