Re: TB: CULT: Short stalks

<I ended up getting 6 seed pods on Maria Tormena, even though the stalks
were only about 12" tall.  I guess short stalk flowers are still
fertile. Randy Z10 southern CA.>

They certainly can be.  My best IMMORTALITY seedling (IMCS26) was the
only seedling that bloomed last year due to the usual late hard freeze.
The 'stalk' was about 4 inches tall, falls of the only flower to open
almost dragging the dirt.  I have about a dozen rapidly growing
seedlings from that flower.  One of these babies should be named 'making
lemonade' <g>

So here I am, madly making crosses with seedlings that I know carry the
trait to be stunted by late freezes... I sure do wish I knew how hard it
will be to get rid of that trait in future crosses.  Is it dominant,
recessive, additive, multiplicative??

I know I don't have enough data to figure it out.  Tom Parkhill might
have some insights - he's really annoyed with PARKRIDGE CHALLENGER's
height variability & has been noting which of his crosses 'behave' &
which don't.  I will ask.
