One more and I may be done for the season. 
This is the frustrating side, but interesting.  This cross has produced several very pretty seedlings. Some even have lovely lavender beards!  At least 9 will have fall bloomed by the end of this season. 
1502-2 (((Silverado x Immortality) x (Bridge In Time x (Feedback x Titan's Glory))) X Star Gate. 
Pod parent is a very robust plant and you've been seeing Star Gate.  Most of the seedlings (about 50) have corkscrew foliage . . . and none of the rebloom has been over 14 inches tall.  Regular height in the spring.  You can look across a bed and recognize these seedlings without seeing a marker!  There are more in this year's beds. 
Oh!  Only the white ones are pretty!  About half are purple (think feedback) and VERY ugly!  None of the purples have fall bloomed!
