This is a little darker lavender in the garden. (Darker than it's showing on my monitor) This bloom is far from perfect, but I post it to show the FIRST seedling from the cross that does not have any yellow in the ground. It does have a darker flush of purple under the beard.
The bugs are starting to attack my blooms and even the spaths. It's also raining just about every day.
This is the one I meant to include. It also shows the flags Linda mentioned. Each flag represents a different seedling from 1812 that formed at least 1 stalk. Last count was 33 (out of 91) More that 1/3 have at least tried to fall bloom this FIRST year.
This bloom, 1812-15RE, put up two stalks, one right after the other. Will post clump shot if it . . . if the bugs leave anything.
