Linda  --  I'm sure it depends upon what you're aiming at.  If you want a red beard, it's Wearing Rubies; if you want orange, it's Machismo.  If you like Who's Your Daddy, there are two doses of it in Machismo.  I don't have Machismo, but a photo of it in Dave's Garden website shows better flower form than Wearing Rubies, and the photo of WR in Barry Blyth's catalogue bears this out.  On the other hand, Barry's catalogue says of Machismo, "branching is OK with some show stems", while praising Wearing Rubies' "excellent bud count and show branching", as well as touting it as a "superb parent".  Tradeoffs, tradeoffs, tradeoffs. --  Griff
