Re: HYB:Traits:parents

My approach as well - many many crosses on a few cultivars (rebloomers like IMM, HARVEST OF MEMORIES, VIOLET MIRACLE) several seedlings (one cycle rebloomer). Lots of variability of growth habits/strength of children, depending on the match.

There are others I'd <like> to be making shotgun crosses with but they haven't cooperated as well. yet. Haven't given up on TEA LEAVES, MATRIX, & RENOWN just yet.

So far, most of the few MATRIX crosses have given low germination, seeds rotting. Maybe they don't like the burrito treatment? LIGHTNING RIDGE X MATRIX has given the best germination - <very> curious to see what those look like, & if any rebloom shows up.

""""So I'd definitely be a fan of the shotgun approach --
cross with as many [widely] different parents as you
possibly can. You never know which is gonna be that
special combination"""
