Here's some pics of my first siberian seedlings, these were from the same mixed pollen crosses as
the LA's. I'm 99% sure these are all from Eric the Red X Caesars brother. The only other Siberian
possiblities would be butter and sugar, nana alba, and white swirl. I didn't get very good pics on
these, most turned out blurry from breezy days. i have lot's of these seedlings, around 40. many
of these bloomed 2nd year. I transplanted these last fall when I moved, each was one tiny plant.
planted nearly a foot apart. I mixed in some really old manure out of an old barn, they flourished,
I had to devide them this fall, they were clumps and nearly touching.
