Hi Mary Lou,

Congratulations!  This is an example of making red from Renown?  I'd say you've made a good start. 
If you get the opportunity, would you make this cross in reverse? 

What type of stalks/branching do you see on Wearing Rubies?  This is a cross I'd have made, if Wearing Rubies had cared to bloom this spring.  Maybe next year!  As is, I went with Drinks @ Sunset x Renown.  Seeds are in the pots now.

42 seeds from the 06 seed crop. 3 sprouted over the first
winter, none of which broke ground.  3 sprouted in fall, 07,
after spending over a year in the crisper.  All survived to
plant out 4/08.  This was just a swelling in the fan when
potted at end of Oct. Outside just for this photo, drooping
on third day open 2 feet from a floor heat vent.  Getting lots
of pollen from it.
I set 2 more pods of the same cross last spring and the second
sprout has broken ground.  Using Miracle Gro potting soil may be
the difference.
Speaking of redish things - Sutton's Lest We Forget bloomed
on primary and on 2 (honkin big!) increases this fall after
being received in July.  Darker and more ruffled than the
website photo.  Also, better branching and budcount than
anything I've had using Mulberry Echo pollen. Curious to see
if the branching is as good next year, and if it will rebloom here.
Mary Lou, near Indianapolis, Z5 - about 400 have broken ground
so far here.
