Betty  --  I presently have 20 seedlings from WEARING RUBIES x sdlg 01S3 
(AURA LIGHT x ROMANTIC EVENING), which are growing well.  There was better 
than 50% germination in the lot.  They were only set out late this year, so 
I don't expect to see much, if any, bloom next spring:  I've attached a 
photo of the pollen parent, which, while it is a rich red amoena, does not 
have good plant form.  It inherited AURA LIGHT's short stature and then 
some.  It's second year of bloom was worse than the first.  I used it as a 
pollen parent in its first year of bloom hoping that most of the seedlings 
will have WEARING RUBIES' stature.  Fingers crossed.  --  Griff
