RE: Moving On

Joe I crossed Lakeside Maverick with an F1 seedling from Lakeside Ripples.
It has many of the same characteristics but has a better flower scape. I
also crossed LM with two other seedlings.  I had a several hundred
seedlings.  From the group I selected 72 plants.  That was the number that
went into one tray. I kept about 10 or 12 of the gold seedlings.  Some came
from all three crosses.  The gold plants were not usually as strong as the
all green so many of them were discarded. Last year I crossed Niagara With
LR and LM.
Gold plants came from both crosses.  I have them in the seedling house.
They are in two gallon containers and growing well.
On several occasions I have gotten gold plants from Lakeside Ripples.  In
fact I am growing off one now that is 3 years old.  Last year it look very
I don't often cross gold plants but do remember that several seedlings from
Lakeside Delight were all green.  Both of these things happen every year in
several of the crosses.  I get green plants when crossing two blue ones and
even get gold ones occasionally from the two blue parents.
I guess things may not work the same for me.  I get all types of plants from
ventricosa.  In fact I have over 100 at present that show almost not
characteristics of ventricosa.

Can you give us the parentage of these and the numers of seedlings
showing the unexpected color and the total number of seedlings?
