Hi Robert,

Thanks for the thought. If Fiery Temper blooms right for me this
spring I will cross several things with it. It's a late bloomer here
and Star Gate is the only rebloomer open late enough to match up.
Often the temperatures are too high by then for success. Nothing I've
tried has taken.

My program focuses on rebloom and I'm trying to test the value of
Matrix as it contributes to form and rebloom. Others have workded on
it, too. I've not particularly liked most of the lighter things I've
produced and was wondering about using it in my dark, navy, black and
red, lines.

'Fiery Temper' is half 'Romantic Evening' and I have successfully used
RE, and it's children, in the rebloom lines. I like the results I'm

I have been doing a bit of color mixing. I'll never learn it all, but
I'm having a lot of fun trying!

IÂtried something different this year, I put Fiery Temper with two
pinks, Rhapsody in Peach and Bold as Love. So far I have a total of 29
seedlings that have germinated so far.from these two crosses. Kind of
wondering if I can get the red black fall of Romantic Evening to show
up. Should make nice blooms..

Thanks. Some dark might show up, even from light crosses, due to
'Violet Miracle.' (in Matrix) Thought I might try something dark like
'Fiery Temper' or 'Rippling River.'

Mary Lou and Robin, didn't you guys do some things with dark things
like 'Wearing Rubies?' Or were those all from 'Renown?'

Thinking of doing one more round with 'Matrix.'
