Re: HYB: germination! etc

I planted all of them. Too much trouble to keep track of things as it is without making it more complicated.

That's part of why I put the pot outdoors - I wanted to try to give the rest of the seeds more chilling.

At least I know these are tough enough to tolerate being frozen solid at a tender stage of development!

Speaking of tough, in the balmy spring weather yesterday, I enjoyed a stroll thru the seedling patch, looking for seedlings with undamaged foliage. Looks like the most freeze resistant are some from one of the weedy cream seedlings(IMMORTALITY x CELEBRATION SONG) X reliable but leaf spot prone orange seedlings (GOLDEN APPLE x CRYSTAL GLITTERS).

Interesting to see such disease free foliage on several seedlings from that cross when the orange is very susceptible to leaf spot in hot, wet/humid (i.e., heavy prolonged dew) weather.

Other crosses with both parents relatively leaf spot resistant haven't always produced seedlings as leaf spot resistant.

<Let's hope they're all tough ones. Did you plant all the seeds or
just the sprouted ones?
