Re: HYB: Mariposa Skies

> this year is MARIPOSA SKIES

I killed MP several years ago, but after noticing the pedigree, decided
to give it another try last fall.  It did manage to bloom this year
(along with a lot of other things I thought had died long ago!), & while
it isn't very happy about being here, and made no pollen, it did set a
pod crossed back to frozen VIOLET MIRACLE pollen.  Not necessarily
trying to get rebloom, just a good, healthy neglecta or amoena & with a
little luck, slightly wider petals than VM.

This is a pod I expect to lose to stalk rot before it matures, but the
forecast is for it to maybe quit raining every day late next week, & it
hasn't rotted yet....
