RE: TB:Using Romantic Evening as a Parent

One of my Romantic Evening crosses has been blooming this spring.
Purple Pirouette X Romantic Evening has produced some amazing blacks.
Unfortunately the best one, good branching and form, bloomed out.  It
was very black purple with bright yellow beards.  All the blacks show
very good substance and don't fade in this Arizona sun as  most blacks
do.  It's a cross I'll try again.

It is good to read your emails and to find you to be your old chipper 
self again.

You suggested using ROMANTIC EVENING in a post three years or 
so ago, and I picked up on that immediately.  Several seedlings 
from crosses using its pollen bloomed this year, and all that have 
bloomed have been keepers - or at least worthy of a second look 
next year.  Some are still unbloomed, so that makes me anxious for 
next year's crop of maiden bloom.

Arctic Fox x Romantic Evening gave me the seedling I won an EC 
on last week at our show.  I have smeared its pollen on just about 
everything.  We had a week without rain, and that has helped in the 
daubing department.

I also have some really pretty reds out of Hello Darkness x 
Romantic Evening and some other reds out of Edna's Wish x RE.
Star Fleet x RE has produced some purple bi-tones.

Continued success in hybridizing!
