[PHOTO] siberian seedlings

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.
