My own attitude toward bee pods is that they are a gift from nature, so I
plant them and usually compost them after seeing the bloom.  Sort of a back
to nature bit.  Here is a seedling from a bee pod from SNOW BLANKET.  It
surely had an arilbred parent.  The plant and bud size did not give me any
clues here!  I never dreamed it would look like this.  Bud count is par for
the TB X AB cross.  This is pretty much TB in form, but the signal area and
larger stylearms give away what must be arilbred ancestry.  I think.  If
not, this still ought to be a good plant to use with arilbred pollen.

Go for it!
