I can assure you that the Vossen seedling has not been introduced. I and
others have tried to convince Carole to introduce more of her work. Carole
has a mental set of standards for introducing and just because the bloom is
attractive and the plant grows well does not satisfy her criteria even
closely. The only two Vossen introductions that I know of are Aurora's Veil
and Ono Sunset. Unfortunately this robin does not allow photos or I would
have attached images of both. I hosted some seedlings of Carole's which she
gave me permission to distribute via the ASI plant sale. They sold as an
inexpensive collection so beginners would have something inexpensive to
start growing arilbreds. I do not remember  your seedling being one of the
batch I released but it seems like there are more and more things I don't

V361 from Carole Vossen.  I don't know if this is OGB or OGB+.  The signal
area is pretty nice.  The Norris seedling I posted earlier this week has a
signal as opposed to a signal pattern.  The signal on the Norris seedling
was raised and nappy.  Seeing one that does what the species oncos do is
quite something.  The only time I've seen one bloom in my yard that was the
raised signal was a one time bloom on I. jordana.  This one straddles the
line, so I'll look when I have a new bloom tomorrow.  Lots of veining on
what can only be described as gray for the ground color.  Acquired from the
ASI sale so I can't confirm from a written description whether this is
correct or not.  I suppose the seedlings from the sale are rejects for some
reason or another, but have possible value as parents.  Not sure.  Anyway it
has not been introduced so far as I know.
