Re: TB:REB:Seedling


Congratulations, Loic!  You're much better with the archives than I.  I thought I'd posted it last year, but couldn't find it.  Yes, the cross is Star Gate x Violet Miracle. 
There are four stalks.  One is nearly perfect in branching and two aren't far enough to know.  I've not counted the buds yet.  Lots of rain today.  I wasn't really interested in it until yesterday!  ;-)  The texture is smooth.  No velvet on the purple band as you might expect. 
This is from the 2006 batch of seedlings.  It is the last season that went well for crosses here.   Many of the crosses were an intermediate stage, and I wanted a few to satisfy my need for fall bloom!  This was from my "sure fired" rebloom crosses of the year.  Part the result of my desire to explore the possibilities of Matrix.  So far, I've seen one traditional plicata from this cross.  I had so many seedlings from this year (2006 seed) that I couldn't plant all of them.  This seedling was NOT in the first dozen I'd planted from this cross, but was the strongest when I looked at the pot again in Sept. to plant a second dozen.  Shot one of my theories. 
This one seems to produce enough new rhizomes to support good rebloom and still manage to grow the clump.

Hello Betty,
went to check the parentage in the archives:
so 2150-02re  =  Star Gate: ( Feed Back X Violet Miracle ) X Matrix: ( Violet Miracle x Brother Carl ) and as you said, it's half Violet Miracle.
Unlike most people, i like the darker zone on the shoulders, it gives it character, a bit like Poetic Walk (attached).
i would definitely freeze it's pollen to pollinate some of my SDBs in the spring, particularly Miss Nellie's children that show this kind of marking.
You don't say about the texture, the bud count nor the branching, i want to know...!
