Re: Tempting Fate

Although the name suggests a relationship to Twist of Fate, Tempting Fate is 
from different breeding: (Premonition x Pacific Shores) X Graduation. Duane 
Meek and I have both tried crossing Tempting Fate with Fatal Attraction. I 
know I didn't get anything very good from the cross, and I am sure Duane 
would have let me know if he had. About the best seedlings from Fatal 
Attraction to date have come from a cross with Satin Satan. Rest assured that 
the dominant amoena gene does not act very dominant when crossed to the 
blacks and one or two neglectas out of a cross of several dozen seedlings is 
all that can be expected. 

It's funny how the seedlings produced by a variety influences a hybridizer's 
feelings about it. I take uncommon pleasure in removing a "bad parent" from 
the garden! Possibly there are no really bad parents, just ones for which we 
haven't found the right partner.
