for the horse to weed?

Seems like I've
never gotten any pollen on pallida here, but maybe some on the kids.  I will
have to let these things grow a few years to see which ones are the best clump

On the other hand, I have a few cooperative "modern" (i.e., tet)
non-rebloom seedlings that have been good clumpers, and have at least one
cross with IMM that makes stalks like crazy.  And is totally uncooperative
about producing children!

The more I think about it, the less I see that
these kids might have to offer my breeding program, but I will plant a few
around the edges of the rows for the horse to weed in case I change my mind in
the future.

<if pallida X IMMORTALITY isn't an option, you might want to
still consider trying pallida pollen on IMMORTALITY.>
