I've a second seedling showing color from 2025. It's purplish blue, and at least as dark as Breakers. Of course, it's still in the bud and it's a maiden bloom which I've not seen. Not that this is great, but it's not yellow or white!
It's turned hot and steamy after 3 inches of rain. With 80+ predicted for the next week, I'll probably see this one open soon. Cross your fingers that it's not ugly with a capital UGH.

I like your 025 see
dling. The white blaze beneath the beards make it very distinctive. The other blend of colors on the falls is interesting also. Do keep that one.
Also this is the only seedling I have seen from Total Recall that isn’t some combination of yellow and white. I was beginning to think that it couldn’t give anything else.

these are 2 of my Total Recall seedlings-the yellow/white one is TR x Painted Clouds; TR x Chickasaw Sue has the dusky lavender falls. This is first year bloom for TR X PC, second year bloom for TR X CS.
There are more seedlings from both crosses yet to bloom for the first time - both of these had 6 buds, branching was close on TR x PC, but the seedling wasn't all that large. TR X CS had good branching, but the color leaves much to be desired. Neither have fall bloomed-the photos are of spring bloom.
The seedlings are very healthy, increase is good.
