Re: HYB: TB: ?Wishful Thinking X Bel Esprit?

I wouldn't actually make that cross, just was wondering if that might
make some strong babies.

With WISHFUL THINKING being short on buds and branches, I would probably
cross it with one of the supertough rebloom carrying lines I've got
going.  Or maybe one of the really old things to see how it's finish and
pizazz mixes.  Maybe something totally wild like WT X BELVI QUEEN <g>

One of these days, I will stop experimenting to see how various gene
pools mix and get serious about all this...

Most likely mix it with one of the heavily branched and budded PINK
FORMAL descendants, same with BEL ESPRIT.   Assuming everybody
cooperates and I don't decide that's not a good idea for some reason
while seeing them in bloom.
