Dear Anner: No, I have not tried bearded pollen on the tectorums, but will
certainly try a few crosses this year. Thank you for the challenge. I will
also try the tectorum alba on the seedlings aforementioned.  One very nice
stalk on a new seedling bred for rebloom and Space-Age . Hope he warm
weather continues until it is open. This has been lovely weather, - much
much nicer than summer was.  Lloyd Zurbrigg in Durham NC  Also had a nice
SDB last week S blue F aqua-green.
