Re: HYB: garbage?

That is really interesting, Bill.  One of the reasons I made that
particular cross was because SEAKIST has good substance here & I was
hoping to improve subtance in my seedlings.

Not necessarily related to your observation, but still interesting.

Some of the newer introductions that have good substance seem prone to
looking like my garbage seedling here.  As hot, dry but humid weather
settles in towards the end of TB bloom season, "modern" blooms seem more
prone to looking like this.  I hadn't really thought about it before,
but maybe in both circumstances, something is interfering with adequate
water in the bloom for it to fully expand - cold injury early in the
stalk development, drought & heat stress late.

<On a more serious note, here blooms distorted similar to the photo
Linda posted have exhibited
                   substance heavier than on the subsequent undistorted
blooms opening afterword. This is true in the
                   one instance I can clearly recall. That is not a very
large sample from which to draw a conclusion.

                   I wonder if there is or is not a correlation?
